Peter Walker: Track 2417 in area near Eglish, Sperrin Mountains (Ireland)
Eglish
Length: 2.3km, Creator time taken: 34m51s, Ascent: 87m,
Descent: 97m

Places: Start at C51257 04883, Eglish, end at Start
Logged as completed by 1

This is a relatively arbitrary route up this particular side of Eglish, starting from a gate in the fence on the minor road heading NNE from the B49. Initially I took dubious 'advantage' of a track that is currently precariously balanced between 'existing' and 'not existing' before slanting up left once clear of a conspicuous plantation (also on the left). A couple of fences protect the summit area, best crossed where they meet....said summit area is as lumpy and indeterminate as most in the Sperrins.

I returned the same way...kind of (the terrain is much of a muchness, and given the weather's recent refusal to leave the rinse cycle that means it's lushly vegetated and horribly wet).

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 0h 37m + 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.
