Twenty two walkers turned out on a wet and windy, winters day. We parked at Ormond Stile at the entrance to Ballinacarra woods. The first mile or so was on tarred roads, then through a gate and onto a farm track. This brought us up Knockadiggeen. There is a fine view off this hill of 402 metres.
We descended back down the hill and across the road onto another forest track which brought us up to our second objective of Ballincarra hill. The last stretch of this is off-track and up through the forest. At 403 metres it is a fraction higher than its neighbour. We descended back through the woods and were soon back at our cars. The walk took about 3.5 hours. We has mixed weather – everything from sunshine to hail stones. All the group were properly dressed for the weather, so everyone was very comfortable. This was an enjoyable outing on a day most people were hudddled indoors.
This was a Grade B walk. Click here to find details on how we grade walks.
