This starts over rough ground starting from the area of Grania's Gap. The route is fairly simple though the ground is rough and untracked in most parts. There are a few sometimes waterlogged tracks in places that are sometimes useful.

To avoid some of the tussocky ground the return route included a section through the forest as shown, leaving the trees via a forest road. As of 2013 the trees were fairly well grown Sitka spruce and it was reasonably easy to walk through them. The ground in the forest turned out to be covered in red fungi.

There are extensive views over the high land of the Inishowen penisula and also south towards {London}Derry.
