This route starts from the Glenmalure Lodge and takes an approach up Carriglineen and then Kirikee that avoids excessive doglegs. From Kirikee to Cullentragh is fairly conventional, includin a piece on a brand new (as of 2022) forest road to the Shay Elliott Memorial. Following Cullentragh it turns left and south at the col before ascent to Mullacor. Initially the route is on an old green road and then south over rough heathery ground to the south. To get to the forest road for the return it is necessary to cross the Ballyboy Brook which needs care and could well be impassable after heavy rain. The route found was to the west of a stream (named Truman Gearr by East-West maps). The south side of this brook has been replanted and could become difficult to walk through. Following reaching the forest road, be careful to select the correct route to return to Coolalingo Bridge and back to the start.
