Route to Maumtrasna using the Skeltia and Leynabrick spurs running north from Lough Nafooey.

Maumtrasna is a curious hill. Basically a large plateau bitten into by a number of coums and with no obvious 'best' route to the top. The coums however provide a number of possibilities. This walk was prompted by a 2004 comment from miked, who suggested it, but found his attention grabbed by another coum having made his ascent.

We tried this route in 2019 and found it fine. We made one mistake -- towards the end, coming off Leynabricka we continued too far down the ridge directly towards Lough Nafooey which was bringing us directly towards farmland. We changed course and headed SE to the stream which you can approximately follow through rough woodlands to the road.
Of course, if we had looked more carefully at Onzy's route we might have realised this.

NOTE: ALL information such as Ascent, Length and Creator time taken etc should be regarded as approximate. The creator's comments are opinions and may not be accurate or still correct.
Your time to complete will depend on your speed plus break time and your mode of transport. For walkers: Naismith's rule, an approximate though often inaccurate estimate, suggests a time of 3h 12m + time stopped for breaks
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.
