Mullaghcleevaun East to Carrigvore
This route provides an easy day out with many options for longer or shorter versions. We parked in a layby off the Military Road below Carrigshouk which as a summit could have easily been added to the route. The parking is right at a forest entrance and the track is followed for a short while. To the left as seen on some maps a small trail will take you off up the side of Carrigshouk and onward toward the col between Carrigshouk and Mullaghcleevaun East Top. The walk is, on the day we had (sunny), very pleasant!
Carrigshouk summit is to the right and middle of the photo.

The summit of Mullaghcleevaun East Top is rather grassy and devoid of peat and sports some large boulders. The views, too, are fantastic! From here one could head West to Mullaghcleevaun or as we did North East to Duff Hill. The natural ridge of sorts from Mullaghcleevaun East Top all the way to Carrigvore via Duff Hill and Gravale is easy to navigate, and these days, well trodden in places. Enjoy the views if you are afforded them. The undulating terrain flew by for us but in wetter conditions more time would be required for this traverse.
Mullaghcleevaun East Top - get up on that boulder too!

The descent to the Military Road via the South East spur of Carrigvore is easy going until the last few hundred meters where our mistake in following an old waterlogged track proved to be tough going and truly wet under foot. The march back along the road ment we only needed one car and was why we chose the route, however it did drag on somewhat with the many passing cars. However we were spoiled with the sunny vistas and a section of road which I had never walked.
An old and overgrown "track"...it was easier to walk "off track"!

No doubt this route is well trodden and many longer routes could be traversed in the area but the access by road does make for an easier day out. The reduced height gain required to gain the summits may also have an appeal to some. For those that participate in bouldering, Carrigshouk bouldering spot is right beside the parking area and has some great beginner bouldering problems.
