With restrictions on how far we can circumnavigate our area, this local circuit provides stunning views, reasonable length and good lonlieness. This was a good choice to banish the cobwebs at the start of the New Year.
Starting from Richardson's shop in Lacken you will access the Mass Path within 20 meters of your car. Follow this new path up on to the saddle of Carrig. There is then a defined track heading east for the summit of Sorrell. From there head south south east to summit Black Hill.
From here you will need your compass/GPS to meet up with the end of the Green Road. Track east to the head of Cook Brook just below The Brushes. There is a fairly decent track leading down the west side of the brook. This track leads you to the end of Broe's Lane. Follow the Lake Drive Road back to Lacken.

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 3h 37m + 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.
