This was an enjoyable curcuit with fantastic views over Galway bay from the summit. In the distance, the twelve bens could be seen looming from the mist, their majestic peaks enticing us to explore more. Closer, one can scan all the way from Spiddal to Salthill, and into Kinvarra on the other side.
At the start of May, the flora and fauna of the Burren brought some treats to the eye. Take note as you walk.
Watch out for the small forests and scrub near the start and end of this trail. Nothing too annoying, but a bit of ducking and diving is required, and there are some thorn bushes here and there.
NOTE: The end point of this track should be used as the starting point, as my GPS was turned on a bit late.
