This route does not cross any mountainview peaks. It's a pleasant walk on it is own, but is also a recommended (but lesser known) route back to Carlingford for anyone taking on the length of the Foye ridge out to Foxes Rock. (which has already been uploaded by another - track 903)

The track starts near the windy gap/long woman's grave, at an RSJ barrier over a forestry track. The majority of the walk as far as the Goylin Pass is on farm track, with the last section over open mountainside, but even here the terrain is not bad. From the top of pass the route follows more tracks to the trig pillar that stands on the lower of the twin summits of Barnavave! These tracks lead over the top and down to the famine village, before taking more forestry tracks and finally quiet country roads back into the town.
