[RWD version 1 ] This was a Thursday G2 hike with the Ramblers taking an improvised route which would avoid river crossings for safety after a couple of days of torrential rain. We had great weather and the route turned out to be a very enjoyable walk. The last stretch (2k) was via the military road in the interest of time, however the hike could have followed the Glenmacnass River back to the cars had time allowed - this would probably add 20 minutes.
