kburke96: Track 4586 in area near Slieve Mish (Ireland)
Curraheen river walk
Length: 15.3km, Creator time taken: 5h25m, Ascent: 589m,
Descent: 582m

Places: Start at Q80911 10742, end at Start
Logged as completed by 1

From the parking spot at Q809107 (just after the equestrian centre, room for 3-4 cars), join the 'Kerry Camino' waymarked path. Follow this path westwards for just under 3km, until you reach the metal cross at the Curraheen river. Cross the river using the bridge provided. From here, head SSE, handrailing the river on your left. Pick up various sheep tracks and gradually gain height as you make your way through the valley. After about 4.5km you will reach the lake, providing the source of the river. This is a tranquil spot to take a few minutes and gaze up at the rocky cliffs that drop down from Baurtregaum and Glanbrack surrounding you.
Head back down the valley along the same route and rejoin the established path to return to the starting point.

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 2m + 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
