This was a circuit to summit four outstanding Vandeleur Lynams .. Coumfea West Top, Coumfea North Top, Carrignagower and Knockaunapeebra. The circuit was completed clockwise and it was a pleasant surprise to find a good track up our first ascent and continuing westwards (broken in parts) to Coumfea West Top. Navigation was easy as it was a clear sunny day. The original plan was to swing East/South East from Knochaunapeebra to make our way back to the cars. However, a good track was visible leading westward towards the top of Mahon Falls. We followed this and crossed the river with a view to descending on the west side of the Falls. As we couldn't see a clear route down, we crossed back over the river to pick up a steep track on the East side which allowed us to finish the hike on the main track into Mahon Falls. It was a difficult, steep descent which should be approached with considerable caution in my view.

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 18m + 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.
