Sliabh Glas/Loch Dubh Loop

Moderate – 4 hours – 8kms – Height gain: 500m

We follow an established track from the road at Slieveglass to lead us into the valley, where we head SW to pick up the Owennaleana river ,gradually ascending over roughish but maneagable ground, before starting our steep climb in a NW direction, to reach Loch Dubh (650m) in the shadow of Mt Brandon. We then follow a direct route Eastwards down the spur to pick up our original track and home

Easy option: Shorter loop ,excluding the lake and final climb
