What to do on a stormy wet day ... Go for a walk in the hills of course. That way you can have them all to yourself!
This walk starts at the small car-parking space at the bottom of Lodge Lane. Head up the lane until you come to Pound Lane. This is the access route on to the Green Road and from there up onto Black Hill.
The weather was fairly stormy today but with proper gear it takes the sting out of it. The cloud was down on Black Hill. Head north to Sorrel Hill Gap car-park. From here head straight up on to Sorrel Hill. There was a pilgrimage group of about 25 souls heading up from the Lugnagun direction.
Head to Carrig Wood and swing south down the track at the wood corner. At the bottom of the track swing left along the track down towards the Gap Road. Turn right on the Gap Road and head to Lacken.
At Lacken turn left and head back to Lodge Lane. Lovely scenery and reasonable terrain.
