Walk completed on 15 June 2019. Started from car park at Black Road at R89306 20345 and went up the usual route to Galtybeg and on to Galtymore. After summiting Galtymore, I decided to make the most of the long day and I went back all the way to the car park and then went up Galtymore two more times.

For the 2nd and 3rd loop I left the main trail at R89128 21203 and followed a minor path to Attychraan river at R88615 22203. Easy crossing here at the time of the walk, there are stones you can step on but it might be trickier after a wet spell or if in spate.

These two alternative approaches have no real advantage over the main route in terms of ground conditions and distance.The ground can be just as wet and boggy as the main path but it's great to go off the beaten path on a busy summer day and make the route from the south more interesting (and much longer and more challenging)...

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 9h 40m + 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.
