Saturday 26th January – The Mullaghs
Starting from the small village of Cranagh, set in the picturesque Glenelly Valley both the “A” and the “B” walks will head north up the Tamnagh Road before turning west towards Carnkilly.

Both parties will continue west climbing to the tops of Mullaghdoo mountain and Mullaghclogha mountain, the highest point of the day at 635 meters.
Time should be taken here to check out the great panoramic views of the Sperrin mountains. The “B” group will then follow the fence line southeast to meet a mountain pathway which will take them to the end of their walk seven miles later at Oughtdoorish.

Meanwhile the “A” walk will continue to seek more of the Mullaghs the Sperrins have to offer climbing to the tops of Mullaghasturrakeen, Mullaghclogher and Mullaghcarbatagh before heading south towards Mullaghaterrive. The “A” walk will end their day 10 miles later at Drumnaspar Bridge and car park

Sunday 27th January – County Rock to Moneyneaney
Anothern superb walk is on offer on Sunday in the Central Sperrins. Starting at County Rock the group will follow a fence line in an easterly direction. This is the high Sperrins mountain range at its very best.

Meenard mountain at 626 meters and its next door neighbour Mullaghaneany at 627 meters are the finest viewing the Sperrins can offer. Continuing to follow the fence line we will summit the mountains of Oughtmore and Spelhoagh before heading down to Craigbane.

Our last climb of the day will see us on the top of Crockbrack mountain then its over to its sister mountain Crockmore before finding the zig zag pathway which will take us downwards towards Mulligans pub car park in Moneyneaney to end our walk some 10 miles later.
