Loop walk to summit of Slieve Bearnagh via Hare’s Gap and Fofanny Dam.

Enjoy a day walking in the beautiful Mourne Mountains and admire the granite tors on the summit of Slieve Bearnagh, with multi-lingual, qualified Mountain Leader.

We will ascend along a pleasant route which steepens towards the Mourne Wall at Hare’s Gap, from where we will continue to the summit of Slieve Bearnagh for a coffee break amongst spectacular granite tor formations and, on a clear day, views of surrounding summits, reservoirs and loughs. We will descend to a more gentle section, stopping for lunch along the way then passing the shores of Fofanny Dam and a section of the Mourne Way to finish at the Meelmore Lodge café.

Walk summary: 11km distance with 560m ascent
