Such a shame to end a lovely walk sitting in the car for an hour going nowhere. Just completed the walk today 31/1/17 with my wife.Although it was a fair old trek to the top the views were well worth it.Here a stepped boardwalk climbs through steep terrain and boulders fields before reaching the summit plateau.
We got there early (approx 9..15am) and were well directed into the car park.
However the day was spoilt when we tried to leave the area.
Absolutely NO traffic management - cars parked all along the road sides which left one narrow lane and as cars continued to arrive, there was no way to exit.
Complete traffic jam for a hour - the Security men standing at the carpark entrance would be much more useful ensuring traffic continues to flow on the roads.
The imposing mountain flanks of Cuilcagh give this walk a very atmospheric feeling providing breathing views, the most impressive view is of Lough Atona, a lake nestled at the foot of the mountain which was carved out by the glacier during the last Ice Age approximately 13,000 years ago Please be aware: • It is important to choose a route that suits everybody in your group.
