The plane crash on Corriebracks a few years ago resulted in a major recovery operataion in a very difficult location. Some remnants of what must have been temporary access tracks for recovery vehicles across the bog can be found but these are mainly overgrown. This walk is short enough - starting from the north east, using forestry tracks at first then a few hundred metres of difficult forest bashing (in the snow) before emerging gasping onto the northern slope of Corriebracks. Over the summit and onwards to pause for reflection at the engraved memorial stone set neatly and discreetly in the ground to the south of the summit. Head south into the very obvious and wide (about 200 metres wide) forest ride leading up towards Lobawn. A few hundred metres up turn right (west) into forestry and follow a track down through the trees to meet another track 1km below to the west. Turn left (south) and follow this to a gate. Through the gate and turn right (west) to follow a good track and road through a farmyard past harmless farmyard barking dogs (owner said they are harmless and welcomes walkers passing through). This road leads to Donard village and a rest. Arrange collection here as you are 20 minutes by car back to the starting point.

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 2h 19m + 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.
