Leaders have developed a new and exciting walk for the C’s this Sunday, 21st June, with a variation for B walkers. It starts in the upper car park of Kilbroney, Forest Park and after a steep but manageable start it follows tracks that take in new and beautiful views of Rostrevor,the Kilbroney valley, and the Leckan hills. The path meanders through aromatic pine forests around Slieve Dermot and Crenville before following an old cart track across the grasslands of Knockshee with more super views of the eastern Mournes. If its clear enough the Isle of Man and the patchwork of fields around Kilkeel will be seen from Knockshee as you tuck into your lunches. After an easier climb to Slieve Martin and then Slieve Meen we’ll pause to absorb the breathtaking views of Killowen, Carlinford Lough and the Cooleys. From there its all downhill to the impressive Cloghmore Stone and finally back to the cars.
Just the job for fathers on their special day and all others too!
The usual gear required,walking boots, waterproof jacket,food and drinks. Car sharing required.
Can’t wait!! See you Sunday at 10 am in Gap O’the North pub, Jonesborough for registration.
