mountainmike: Track 3165 in area near Nephin Beg S Top, North Mayo (Ireland)
Nephin Beg From Brogan Carroll Bothy
Length: 16.5km, Creator time taken: 2h53m, Ascent: 13m,
Descent: 18m

Places: Start at F96910 05583, Nephin Beg S Top, Nephin Beg, end at Start

From Brogan Carroll Bothy (renamed Robert Lloyd Praeger Centre as part of Wild Nephin Project) headed out Western Way. Followed Letterkeen Loop over Correen Beg (311m). Left trail to head up Nephin Beg South Top (Knockgorragh?), then on to Nephin Beg top. Down SW ridge to Bangor Trail, which was followed past the Lough Avoher hut, all the way back to the carpark.
***NB*** GPS error means the ascent/descent was not recorded correctly for this route - the height gain is approximately 770m for this route. Also the route was completed in hillrunning shoes and the trail sections on the way in and out were run to save time given the late start. Probably a 4-5 hour walk.
