Excellent loop. Good mix of difficult steep terrain and flat trails. Was able to do the entire thing in one (wet and windy) day with a full pack (skipped the devil's coach road as it was gusting to 60/70 up there - didn't fancy getting blown down it!) . I'd recommend following the Mourne wall to the south side of Rocky mountain before striking West along the edge of Annalong wood - bushwhacking over the hillocks between Rocky and Annalong river is tough going. Also be aware that on days when the river is flowing fast, it may be difficult to find a good spot to cross. Prepare to get your feet wet!

I did this today (2-24-19), coming in from Utah with a friend. This trail was jaw-dropping, I was awestruck by the beauty the entire way. It is a pretty easy hike unless you are not used to hiking and then it could be challenging. It was foggy when we went, which created a superb ambience. I couldn't recommend this one more. Wear warm clothes as it gets very windy

This trail is simply amazing, but for an added bonus, after waking on day 2 in Annalong Valley, you have the option to trek towards Carrick little car park and then turn back toward Slieve Binnian. On a clear day, the views from Binnian are breathtaking, overlooking the famous Silent Valley reservoir and Ben Crom damn wall and reservoir.

Great view at the top. Steep climb for the last 30 minutes of summit.

started at Donard car park and cut through the forest . the trail is well marked out . It's climb all the way on rocks and stones. up onto steps to get to the saddle and a beautiful stone wall built in 1910 . the climb to the summit is very tough on the legs . hard gradient . coming down is a bit slow at summit . the rest is doddle

Would highly recommend this trip, some fantastic scenery and a great opportunity for camping overnight. great spot to camp when you get to annalong wood, which breaks the trip up and makes things a little more enjoyable. also if your feeling fresh the next day you could always climb Slieve Donard or Slieve Commedagh and camp for a second night in Donard forest
