This is a half day loop hike starting and finishing in Carrick Little car park that takes in the Summit Tor and North Tor. This hike features some excellent views of the Annalong Wood and valley, as well as fantastic views of the Silent Valley Reservoir and Ben Crom. Follow the road from the car park north and cross a stile at a gate. The Mourne Wall is on your left. Follow the wall steeply upwards. You pretty much stick to the wall for most of the accent. As you approach the summit Tor stay to the right hand side of the wall, as this is the easiest approach to the Summit Tor. Walk around the summit to get the best views. Leave the summit and head north towards the North Tor. The trail down continues to the left of this rock to the saddle between Binnian and Slievelamagan. At the saddle turn right, do not accend Slievelamagan. This trail will swing around and eventually you will see Annalong Wood on your left. Follow the wood back to the car park.

Amazing views from the top. Can’t believe this trail is almost on our door step. Will definitely be making the short trip to do it again.

Went on this hike yesterday and took a 9 and 10yr old. We left out the summits and headed straight to the saddle for spectacular views. The children’s parents did this same hike years ago as children too and everyone loved it. It’s hard going at parts but so enjoyable. Fabulous day out!

I hiked this exact map yesterday and must say, it isn’t as easy as made out. Although when at the top of the summit it is spectacular
