PMG Walk 66 - Ben Beg Horseshoe. I had intended on the walk being smaller and not doing so much of the ridges but in the end I couldn't help myself. As many have said before there are many (too many) fences to be crossed doing this route. Also my final descent could have been better planned as there are walls with wire fences stopping easy access to the road but difficulties were overcome in the end. Some great views from Bunnacunneen!

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 40m + 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.
