Caherconree Mountain (835m) with its megalithic fort offers impressive vistas, as you gradually climb out of the valley, crossing a saddle between Corrin and Knockbrack peaks.

As you descend you may like to take a break at the stunning nature reserve of Inch Beach. With its crashing waves and pristine beach, Inch Beach featured in the 1960s film Ryan’s Daughter. Make your way along small roads to your overnight stop of Annascaul, birthplace of Antarctic Explorer Tom Crean. Why not reward yourself with a pint in Crean’s pub, the South Pole Inn.
