simon3: Track 2376 in area near Seefin Mountain E Top, Ballyhoura Mountains (Ireland)
East Ballyhouras walk.
Length: 14.6km, Creator time taken: 4h19m, Ascent: 533m, Descent: 560m
Places:Start at R65518 18654, Seefin Mountain E Top, Seefin Mountain W Top, end at Start Logged as completed by 1
This route started from the paying car park which has a mountain biking shop and some refreshments. It would be possible to start from R662 168, where there is insecure parking for several cars.
The track upwards is straightforward, giving access to the Seefins and the car park beyond.
This route is flexible in that it can be cut short at the car park or extended as shown or further extended for example to Little Carron.
Returning the route went into the trees. Although there are cycle tracks going in the direction of the start, I wouldn't recommend these on safety ground. Follow the track as shown which uses forest roads not designated as solely cycle paths.
Towards the end you will find some models of animals in the trees which fool, delight or annoy you depending on whether you are credulous, a child or choleric.
