The tracks shown on the map for parts of this area are sometimes difficult to find, and tend to disappear and reappear. However, orientation was never a problem. Some of our group found it challenging having to tackle Tonelagee towards the end of this long hike. The route from Mullacleevaun to Tonelagee across Barnacullian is covered in peat hags, with deep channels in the peat that provide an array of "roadways" in good weather. It was nice to walk on dried-out peat after the recent good spell of weather. However, I previously walked this route during heavy rain in the summer of 2014. On that occasion, I slithered my way along this boggy route, and then found that I was cut off from the car park at Glenmacnass by the swollen river. The Glenmacnass River swells quickly with rainfall, so weather conditions are very important for this hike.
