This route is recommended by Outdoor Recreation Northern Ireland. It is not waymarked, but follows tracks and the Mourne Wall. It sets out along the Trassey track from Meelmore Lodge, which merges into the Brandy Pad near Hare's Gap, an old smugglers route from Bloody Bridge. This walk spurred off before Hare's Gap along the valley between Bearnagh and Meelmore. Upon reaching the wall between Bearnagh and Meelmore, head directly up the wall to Bearnagh, do not be misled further south by a side track (as we were on this occasion). Take in the Tors and descend eastward to Hare's Gap. Follow the Brandy Pad from Hare's Gap towards Slieve Donard, passing between Commedagh and Slieve Beg. Trudge to the summit of Donard and return via the wall to Hare's Gap, which requires a another steep pull up Commedagh. Take in the summit of Commeddagh if you have the time. This is a well-trodden route.
