Ascend out of the Black Valley to find views of Bridia Valley ahead. Follow quiet tarmac and gravel roads, as well as paths through forest, and fields.

Take in views to the wide Caragh River Valley and the range of hills beyond, dominated by the tilted triangular peak of Mulaghanattin (773m). Soon you’ll reach the shores of Lough Acoose, with views beyond to the Dingle Peninsula, western Reeks and Carrauntoohil, Ireland’s highest mountain (1,039m). Finally, you approach Glencar on the main road.

 

Note de l'auteur

Cooky Monsters Cafe is worth a visit, this is a very remote cafe that offers home-made refreshments (seasonal)

Consignes de sécurité

The main part of the route from Black Valley to Glencar crosses mixed terrain with roads, gravel tracks, and forest paths through Black Valley and Cummeenduff Glen. You will follow an old trade route and there will be sections of rough farmland that may be boggy after rainfall. Although the roads can be quiet it's always best to walk on the right to face any oncoming traffic and make yourself as visible as possible.

Take care on a couple of steep and bouldery descents from the two passes on this section.

There is a risk of ticks in the grass. Use insect repellent and check your body on arrival in Glencar.
