This walk takes you on sand road, roadway, track and mountain terrain heading towards the lower slopes of the Comeragh Mountains, crossing the Nire River, a stream flowing from Coumlara, the shoulder of Carrignagower and on to The Gap, returning along a mountain track to the trailhead. The area is beautiful and remote with scenic views.

Anne from Dublin

Did this hike in late June during glorious weather. A well marked route and took a detour to the Sgilloge lakes. A great walk in dry conditions, real wilderness.
