Our next walk, this Sunday the 24th of June is Slieve Binnian, at 747m the third highest mountain in Northern Ireland. With some amazing rocky tors situated around the top of the mountain, its well worth the climb and effort to see them!!!
Interestingly a tunnel, built in the late 1940’s underneath the mountain, transports water from the Annalong Valley to the Silent Valley. It took four years to construct, two tunneling teams started from opposite ends, and when they met in the middle they were only two inches off course!

As always we will have two groups out a B and C, routes and pace will vary between the two groups, but all walkers new to our club, must walk with the C group for their first outing with us.
Leaders on every walk have group safety as their number 1 priority we operate a front man / back man policy which must be adhered to at all times. Pace is set by the leaders to suit the group of walkers present on the day and no one should try to push this pace.
Be prepared for all weather conditions, keep an eye on the forecast, but as always the must haves are: proper waterproof deep tread hiking boots, and a waterproof jacket, gaiters and walking poles are always recommended.
Bring a packed lunch and plenty of water.
A bus has been organised, at the moment there are seats available only seats which are paid for are secured, otherwise they are filled on a, “first come, first served” basis on Sunday! The bus will pull out at 10.15 am sharp on Sunday so be on time, we expect both walks to be around 4.5+ hours and with a hours travel time in each direction it will be a long day!
