This route begins at some farm buildings up a minor road at the Northern end of Lough Eske, no parking issues. initially followed a farm tack uphill beside the Corraber River, this soon petered out and gave way to a really muddy boggy track heading towards Lough Belshade, had a tricky river crossing and headed towards Croaghbarnes over some very rough terrain, From Coraghbarnes Meenanea and Cornamuck lay to the north, the nearly 3.8km trek to both was over some very rough ground, heading back from Meenanea , i opted to head along the valley floor underneath Croaghbarnes, a fair old slog. Headed back to river and crossed again getting feet wet and followed rough muddy tract back along river to starting point. This was one of the toughest walks I have done in the Bluestack Mountains, plenty of wilderness and a huge sense of remotness about this area, not for the fainthearted.
