This is a variation on a walk in the book 'Best walks in Ireland'. There is plenty of parking by the gates at the start of the walk, walking back down this road at the end of the walk is a nice cool down after a tough walk. Please note that this route crosses the Annalong river at the weir, it may not be possible to cross here after heavy rain. There is a foot bridge, but there is a deep stream between the path and the bridge so I chose to directly cross the river instead.
