Descent: 866m

Places: Start at J2799327852, Slieve Muck, Carn Mountain, Carn Mountain North Top, Slieve Loughshannagh, Slieve Meelbeg, Slieve Meelmore, end at Start
Logged as completed by 2

A track that's very easy to follow, with good parking, 3 highest hundred summits for less than 900m of ascent, but does use the road at the start/end. Disappointed by the amount of litter along the road, though I noticed some council workers plucking a few bits from the parking area on the turn down to Spelga Dam.
You'll get up Muck from the west pretty quickly, though it appears fairly steep to begin with. It's akin to the pull up Donard from the west.
This track could easily be extended to include spurs to Ott, Butter or Doan Mtn.
Straightforward return using waymarked trail along the small Fofanny reservoir.

We did this route on the 23/07/2020 on a foggy day.

The beginning of the trail is along the road until the wall that divides Slieve Muck. There is a steep hill to climb and once there is a nice up and down trail.

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 4h 10m + 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
