Description
Waypoints (0)

Easy trails with great views, and some hidden side paths which offer a larger variety of terrain. Note: pay attention to signs where dogs are not allowed, as free roaming sheep are in those areas, and farmers, being protective of their sheep, take loose dogs very seriously, especially during lambing season. Dogs are not allowed on this mountain at all.

Beautiful wall, not so hard, but need some preparation, grippy boots as the trail goes slippery with mud, wet rocks by the river and waterfalls.

Challenging trail, quite steep and slippy in places. Great views the whole way up. Basically staying to the right of the river all the way up. Sign says gates of parking area close at 9PM in summer, 6PM in winter.

I'd give Slieve Foy a 5star rating but not this hike! I actually wasn't able to find this trailhead as it was obscured by campers' tents -- so wound up doing a lovely long hike along the Tain Way almost to Carlingford, then came up Slieve Foy from the side. The views were absolutely magnificent. Got back down to the car park using this trail which was *very* steep (and this was downhill! Can't imagine enjoying it at all on the way up), flooded in areas next to the spring that flows all the way down the mountain, and very very poorly signposted. Definitely hike Slieve Foy but I would recommend not using this trail to get up there...

I thought it was badly signposted - I struggled to stay on the route (only for the app) very tough and steep! Had to give up as clouds came in and visibility was difficult! Would try again if the weather was better - beautiful views as you go up!

A good hike and when combined with Barnevave it makes for a long hike. Very misty at the summit and no views.

Hiked this mountain a few times as we had to host a cub county hike for 9-12 year olds. once with snow.moderate is a fair assessment, great veiws from eagles rock.. though can be very windy at times. you can also map out a longer hike to include the mountain we managed 20k. enjoyable hike.

Amazing hike, we followed the path for about 1km then decided to hike directly up the to the top which was tough but the view was very rewarding, the wind was insane at the top so bring a puffer jacket for some warmth

(Correction as to location- this is near Carlingford NOT Castlebellingham.) Easy trials with great views, and some hidden side paths which offer a larger variety of terrain. Dogs are welcome on the lower trails, but pay attention to signs where dogs are not allowed, as free roaming sheep are in those areas, and farmer, being protective of their sheep, take loose dogs very seriously, especially during lambing season.
