First time hike for myself although my partner is a fan!! ...I had kitted myself out with some hiking boots, walking poles and layers recommended by previous experienced walkers...as everyone notes the first 30 mins was tough going through boglnd which involved choosing your steps very carefully to avoid being sucked into the wet bog!!!
Once we had managed to get through that stage it was o to the slippery shale which provided its own set of challenges ...was it tough ...yes ...was it worth it ..100%...we had lunch 751metres above and the views were amazing ...photos really do not do it justice when you see those views for yourself!!!.

Took us over 5 hours from start to finish and we loved every minute of the experience. Weather can be unpredictable so bring a rain coat and sunglasses

The climb itself starts going through bogland so wear appropriate footwear. You then climb a rocky/stoney surface. The wind is very strong on the mountain but its all worth it. The views at the top are sensational.

Breathtaking views for 360 degrees. We climbed this the end of June 2020 and the atmosphere was fun and jovial with loads of climbers and good humour and conversation on both ascent and decent.

Not nearly as intimidating as I thought it was going to be! I travelled with Awaken Adventures in Letterkenny. A great team!

Would recommend this walk if visiting Donegal. The views are breathtaking. Initial part of the walk is very boggy, recommend wearing old shoes/hiking boots, the walk is tough enough and took about 3 hours up and down (including break at top)!

Hard climb. Be prepared. Stoney path up and can loose your footing. Concentrate at all times. Mosh marsh at the bottom of the mount before you climb. Wear appropriate footwear! And take water and snacks. 3 hours up and down total. Good climb and really enjoyed it. Stunning views from the top. Found a cross and a few RIP stones. Really Lovely.

I absolutely loved this hike but I found difficult at times.
Hiking boots are a 100% must, doing the hike in runners is madness. A clear day with little wind is also beneficial as it’s so high at the top wouldn’t have wanted any winds.
At the start of the mountain it’s all boggy/swampy ground so it’s full or thick mud & water.
Then it changes into small stones which can be sloppy, I was on all 4’s at certain parts of this climb. There are a few peaks at the top, we went to the second peak which was far enough for us as it got dangerous. We did it early in the morning & started at 8.30 where little people were climbing which was lovely. It took us a 2 hour return trip but generally for other people it takes longer. I found coming down easy.
The hike is worth it for the amazing views at the top, I absolutely loved the hike & would definitely do it again.

Take walking shoes, steep stoney climb but great views from the top. Not for the weak of heart or of knee!

We did this with our 8 yr old. Trail is easy to follow but quite mucky so boots are highly recommended. Otherwise it’s a good and relatively strenuous walk. We went on a windy day and had to turn back as was quite exposed on the side so calm days are much better.

There is a small car park at the base but when we visited this was full and most people parked along the road which was fine as visibility was good with clear ditches.

Views are spectacular so it’s well worth the effort.
