You may well ask: "if I'm going to tackle the four Antrim Arderins, surely I should shorten matters by crossing over from Trostan to Slievenanee or vice versa, rather than two wasteful "out and backs"?"
The answer is :"No...not unless you want to experience a boggy saddle of Wicklow- The Three Lakes -They Never found the Body proportions."
Just a quick, if potentially squelchy, run up Slievenanee from a start height of circa 415m, and back, followed by a short drive to Trostan Base Camp.
