Looking up the Coachroad
A day of blazing sunshine. Starting and finishing at Carrick Little car park, up the Annalong Valley to just past Slieve Beg, cutting back to the foot of the Devils Coachroad. Up the Coachroad (see comment under Slieve Beg) to the summit, then on over Cove Mountain and Slievelamagan before the final long pull up Slieve Binnian (here the party split with some gritting their teeth and biting their tongues along the MHT "made" path and others taking the old path).

From Binnian summit the Mourne Wall was followed back down to the Annalong track and the return to the start.

We did this route on the 24/07/2020 on a really nice day.

We did it in the other sense, so we started doing Slieve Binnian and Slieve Binnian East Top.

Climbing Slievelamagan may result a bit harder due to the big rocks there are there, butyou get used to it and just try to be more cautious.

From Slieve Beg we followed the path marked, you can see it on the map, like a reverse U, since there was one and we didn't need to cause more erosion to the site.

Recommended trail without a doubt

NOTE: ALL information such as Ascent, Length and Creator time taken etc should be regarded as approximate. The creator's comments are opinions and may not be accurate or still correct.
Your time to complete will depend on your speed plus break time and your mode of transport. For walkers: Naismith's rule, an approximate though often inaccurate estimate, suggests a time of 5h 38m + time stopped for breaks
NOTE: It is up to you to ensure that your route is appropriate for you and your party to follow bearing in mind all factors such as safety, weather conditions, experience and access permission.

* Note: A GPS Height in the elevation profile is sourced from the device that recorded the track. An "SRTM" height is derived from a model of elevations for parts of the earth. More detail
