If you're looking for a long distance walk on forest track, road and through a field or two, then this might appeal to you. You can start at Rock an Thorabh car park and the loop back to here on the Western side is 21km which is great if you want to do it over two days. NB: This is my own interpretation of the route. If you're doing it on the day of the challenge, the route might vary. There would be directional arrows on the day of the challenge and it's well marked.

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.
