BINNIAN TO HARES GAP 20 JULY 19
Six ramblers gathered at Meelmore Lodge for transfer to Carrick Little car park, the starting point for today’s walk. It was agreed that the proposed walks would merge and follow the high level route. From Carrick Little car park, the group ascended Slieve Binnian, following the Mourne Wall to the South Tor. From there we crossed to the North Tor before descending to the saddle at Slieve Lamagan and lunch. After lunch, we dropped down to Ben Crom Reservoir and followed the path to the Shelter Stone. From there, it was a gradual climb to the Hares’ Gap and then down to the finish at Meelmore Lodge. The fine weather provided excellent walking conditions and fine views.
