This was my guess at the new route/finish of the Knockmealdown Crossing/Challenge that takes place on the 8th April 2017.

It's not 100% accurate.

You don't have to go up on Knockardbounce, just go through the saddle between itself and Knocknasculloge. Knockardbounce is very wet and you'll have crotch high heather.

As you descend on the path near Barrancullia/Clashganny West you pass through two gates, just before you reach the third gate you turn left and descend a steep slope to the stream and then follow the path down and this brings you to the East Munster Way. If you don't you'll encounter a bull and shin high muck.

It will be marked next week. So no worries.

PS: I can assure you it took longer than the time indicated above, even though I was walking with Hannukkah.

To download GPS tracks you must be enrolled and logged in. See "Login or enrol", top right - quick and easy.

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, a rough and often inaccurate estimate, suggests a time of 8h 18m + 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.

* Note: A GPS Height in the elevation profile is sourced from the device that recorded the track. An "SRTM" height is derived from a model of elevations for parts of the earth. More detail
