I had previously uploaded a track titled 'A Third of the Glenbeigh Horseshoe' which took in three of the eastern summits. I'm now offering 'three quarters of the Horseshoe' which covers the western 6 summits and offers a long walk with a lot of ascent and magnificent views. A long day's walk that turns back to retrace my route to the start, but as a solo walker I am often left with little choice. I had the pleasure of meeting MVr's MCrtchly and Kernowclimber on my walk - the only walkers I met in this glorious mountain range in the whole day - and they helped ease the utter loneliness of my 10 hour hike.

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, a rough and often inaccurate estimate, suggests a time of 6h 29m + 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.
