All of these walks will be in the moderate to difficult category. There will be many steep climbs and ascents and many sections are over rough ground so good walking boots or trail runners are highly recommended. If you are not an experienced walker then walking poles would be very useful.
You should also wear waterproof clothing and carry a good waterproof jacket. Please check the forecast in advance to find out conditions for each day.
It is extremely important that you also carry some drinking water, a packed lunch and some high energy snacks.
As we will often be crossing private land with livestock on them, dogs are not allowed, except on the wind up/ wind down walk. We operate a strictly “leave no trace” policy.
All walks are guided and there will only be a small charge to cover the cost of buses as required.
Buses will be from the Square in the centre of the village. Please note times of each walk.
Wednesday 26th July: Meet in Square @ 10:00
Starting from the village we climb up to Cloughmor via the viewpoint and then continue on to Slieve Martin, Slieve Fadda on to the cairn at Knockshee with its Spectacular Views of the High Mournes, and Carlingford Lough and Mountains. From there we turn back along the ridge but then divert to the seat on Ballynagelty and then head home to the village by the Glen Stream.
