Slow movers and strollers are asked to line up near the back of their respective group. The app is very easy to use and navigate. Continue on the well defined path that takes you to the place from which you began. Third Circuit Court of Appeals also failed. I hope that you fully enjoy!

By the time you arrive at Ribblehead you are completely exhausted not to mention that the final part of your journey will be covered with steps on your way down from Whernside. The last two descents Pen-y-ghent and Ingleborough are really tortuous and you will need to be really experienced to do it this way.
I think Ribblehead is a good alternative starting point to Horton. It will be very busy during Summer time and Bank Holidays too due to the Ribblehead viaduct attracting many visitors to this area.
Plus you finish with a rather smooth descent from Whernside. With the challenge becoming increasingly popular, access to the area is becoming more of an issue. I highly recommend using the train.
There are special tickets you can buy which might save you some money. Another way to access the Yorkshire Three Peaks area is by bus. Dales Bus website is a great tool if you want to use public transport only.

I'm pretty much ashamed to say that this was my first time up to the summit for one who lives so close Kilkeel , however, better late than never!
I love the Mourne Area , the Mourne people, and would encourage local people to take in the beauty that surrounds us. My hat goes off to the men who built the Wall!! The route up the wall didn't look too appealing so I followed the path towards Ben Crom and turned left onto North Tor.
The paths continue right up to the summit and the men who have worked to put these in place need to be commended. Nice clear day meant the views over the whole of the Mournes along this route was breathtaking, had to keep stopping to take it all in. The path and steps up North Tor are steep but manageable although I lost the path twice!
The castles at the top are well worth the climb and the view from the top of Binnian must be the best you will get anywhere in the Mournes. Windy and cold up there despite it being warm and sunny down below. Route down I hand-railed the wall back towards the path, bit boggy in places and would have preferred to go back the long way.
The bast walk I have done in the mournes. We got a clear and bright day 17 May for our first walk around the trail described. The walk was fantastic but wanted to mention the work under way on the path.
The route is under repairs by a group of guys who on the day we passed them, were just down from the Binnian peak. It was a hard trek for a couple of amateurs like us so to do this type of work on a daily basis is truly an achievement.
It looked like hard labour but their work will leave the legacy of a pathway that will last for many years for future walkers. Weather, low cloud at start of walk, clearing later. Still my favourite walk in the Mournes, and haven't been for nearly a year. The new gravel and stones on the path down from the North Tor a great job. It has been three years since I last did Binnion only this time we took the route as described, starting at Carrick Little.
The weather on Sept. The climb to Summit Tor was stiff enough but considerably easier to the approach from Wee Binnion. The views from the summit and all along the ridge to North Tor and down to the ledge overlooking Ben Crom reservoir were absolutely breathtaking and whetted our appetite for another trip to do Slieve Lamagan and other peaks in the immediate area.
This is Mourne walking at its very, very best and we, all seventeen of us, had a truly wonderful day, finished in style at the Mourne Seafood Restaurant in Dundrum.
One word of caution. There isn't a lot of flat ground in and around and on Summit Tor so a lot of care must be exercised on very windy conditions. Did this walk on Sunday 2nd September with my wife and 2 dogs. We were very lucky with the weather with it being a fine dry and sunny day. From the summit we had excellent views to the coast and across the mournes. This was a super walk that we all really enjoyed and is something most people could do if you are moderately fit and active.
Walked this route yesterday and was made all the more special by the weather affording views as far as the eye could see. Walked up the Mourne Wall first and round past the Tors. Meet some lovely people en route and couple from England that had nothing bet praise for N. Recommend this walk to everyone.
Sun 19 Sept, following 2 days of persistant rain, I left Carrick Little to follow the wall to the South Tor in mist , rain and wind. On approaching the Sth Tor and veering right at the first outcrop of big rock I walked around the tor and headed for the Summit Tor. On arriving I settled out of the wind in a large split in the tor I call The Ben Crom Suite where the light and complexion of the rugged granite form shapes of resting Giants, stone monkeys, etc As I set of the wind changed and mist lifted to reveal the magnificance of the inner Kingdom.
This is a must do mountain, never fails to call you back, inspirational. Followed this route on Wednesday, May 12th, Started from Carrick Little car park when the weather was fine. As I approached the summit the weather turned nasty. At one point there was snow coming at me horizontally. The wind was bitterly cold and the cloud had really decended on the summit. The granit tor took on the form of a rather spooky looking outline and appeared out of nowhere rather suddenly. I managed to find shelter on the north side of the tor and settled down for some tea and sarrnys.
Just as quick as the weather had closed in the cloud cleared and the sun appeared. It was just as if someone had pulled back the curtains and there appeared in front of me the most wonderful view of the Silent Valley I had ever witnessed.
This was my first time walking this route. It will certainly not be my last. I hope to do it again very soon. The view across the Mourne range is breathtaking, looking across to Lough Shannagh on one side and Slieve Donard on the other.
This is a must for all ramblers and walkers provided you are prepared for a steep ascent, following the Mourne Wall, and the ever changing weather conditions. The descent is gentle and really enjoyable. You can follow the well defined paths, passing the Blue Lough which should be on your left hand side and eventually walking along the side of the Annalong Wood back to your starting point at Carrick Little car park.
If you haven't taken this route, wait no longer. Go walking, it's good for you. What an astounding view from the Summit Torr of Slieve Binnian!
Almost felt like we didn't deserve that kind of panorama for only climbing one mountain--although it is quite a steep climb, so maybe we earned it. We didn't do the whole loop, just walked to the top and back following the Mourne Wall handy, that. Dan Frederick, seoutings bellsouth. Please note that the meeting place pavilion for this outing is different from where Southeastern Outings has gathered in the past for this outing!
Prior to the canoeing and kayaking and hiking, boaters, hikers and other Southeastern Outings people and guests will get together at the Beaver Pavilion near the Flip Side Water Sports office, FS and formerly the Fishing Center , for a group potluck picnic. Please bring a dish of food to share with the group.
Please do not bring your food in fast food, cardboard or open containers. There are obvious issues with bees, flies and yellow jackets, etc. You may bring a bag of potato chips, but if you do, you should bring some more substantial food to share in addition. Southeastern Outings will furnish plates, cups, knives, forks, spoons, napkins, and ice. Picnic preparations will begin at We will begin eating lunch at After lunch you can enjoy boating on the lower fishing lake.
You may bring your own boat no charge or you may rent a canoe from the park by paying for your rental canoe at the back gate to the park. The park says they have 5 tandem canoes for rent. Two of the canoes each used to have one broken seat in them. No credit cards accepted. First come, first served. FS has available for rent 5 solo kayaks and 8 paddleboards.
Cash or credit cards accepted by FS. No shuttle involved in any of these boating activities. Or you can enjoy a moderately easy afternoon hike along the shore of the upper fishing lake now called Lunker Lake in the park. Hike departs from the Beaver Pavilion about 1: You are welcome to participate in the boating or hiking and skip the group picnic; you are welcome to skip the boating or hiking and come just for the picnic; or, as most people did the previous five times we have sponsored this outing, you are encouraged to enjoy the outdoor exercise activities AND the picnic.
Meet at the Beaver Pavilion which is almost straight downhill from the back gatehouse entrance to the park. Walk on a rails-to-trails conversion route on an old railroad right of way. This smooth trail is wide and level. This finely-crushed rock surface trail goes through mostly wooded terrain.
No motorized vehicles are allowed on the trail! This outing should be lots of fun for everyone. Well-behaved, carefully supervised children age seven and up able to walk four miles without complaining are welcome on this walk. This outing has consistently been one of our most popular events since it is easy, brief, and close to Birmingham.
Enjoy hiking in a very new and especially lovely, heavily wooded park in South Shelby County. This park is in two parcels on the north and south sides of the Cahaba River at Boothton Ford north of Montevallo. The nearest communities are Boothton, Pea Ridge and Dogwood. We will hike on new trails which we have previously scouted in September with an official of the Shelby County Park and Recreation Authority.
We plan to depart from there at 9: Come with us on our weekday hike. Veterans Park is an acre park with numerous walking trails, a four-acre lake and a one-acre pond. If you are retired or not working on this particular Wednesday, you are urged to participate in the Southeastern Outings group hike on the trails and get a feel for the location and scale of the land.
Come with us for a guided tour of easily walkable trails. Please bring water and wear good walking shoes or boots. Dress appropriately for the weather. Please meet at 9: We plan to depart from there at Clear Creek National Recreation Area.
