Next hike Sunday 24th we will be heading for Slieve Gullion, C will be heading up the Famine Wall. B will possibly take a route close to Killeavy Castle. Both groups will summit Gullion then the Southern Cairn, over to Calliagh Berra’s Lake, the Northern Cairn and the King’s Table. Check out the scouting pictures of the Kings’ Table and the new path from the submit to the lake, this is a delight to walk on as in recent years it has become extremely difficult to cross. Expect to be out 3.5 – 4 hours walking mostly on thick heather so take the sticks and put the garters in the bag.
Check out the video of building the new path on top of Slieve Gullion to the lake.
All walkers should meet at the Gap o’the North Pub at 10am for registration and a walks/safety briefing, we will have a quick cuppa then arrange car pool.
All walkers must have walking boots, a waterproof jacket &hat.
Bring a packed lunch.
Sticks are highly advisable for this walk, and every walk.
All walkers are welcome back to the pub for some stew, Enjoy!
New walkers are very welcome to come along, a basic level of fitness is all that is needed, (a rough guide is if you can walk from the Courtyard car park to the top of Slieve Gullion and down again in around 3 hours you are fit for our lowest level group, the C Group).
