A steep accent of the very well known Devil's Coach Road Gully on Slieve Beg in the Mourne Mountains. This is a full day hike that starts and finishes in the Carrick Little car park. There is plenty of parking here, however the car park tends to fill up. You can also park along the road if there are no spaces available. The Devil's Coachroad is most definitely a scrambling route. The rocks are very loose so be very careful. Midway up the gradient eases, so it's easier to move up. Again large rocks were displaced so be careful. A helmet would not be a bad idea. Near the top there is a very narrow V shape that needs to be "climbed". It's only about 10m or so but it is the hardest part of the Gully to negotiate. The route to the right at the top is said to be easier. Again be careful as a fall would be painful at the very best. Once at the top it's an easy decent into the col between Slieve Beg and Cove. The accent up Cove is steep but child's play after the Coach Road. Descend from Cove into the col between Cove and Slievelamagan. Again another fairly steep accent will take you to the top of Lamagan. Note if you are tired you can take a path heading east from the col to cut out the summit. Decent from Lamagan into the col between Slieve Binnian and Slievelamagan. From here the path turns left to re-join the trail back along the Annalong forest back to the car park.
