Looking to the Mournes from the summit
This is an easy loop walk through the Castlewellan Forest, visiting the top of Slievenaslat by a short diversion. It's on substantial tracks at all times, befitting the forest's status as a mountain biking hub and a solid Sunday afternoon picnicking venue.
A much better version of that view, according to Indy
The majority of it is within the forest (as in the bit with lots of trees) itself, but there are still excellent views south to the high Mournes from many sections. These can largely be enjoyed at your leisure, out-of-control mountain bikers being the only vaguely possible hazard.

(The time taken was actually a few minutes short of an hour).
