A hike up Hen mountain
« on: 20:00:12, 05/03/17 »
With the sight of the seven sevens covered in cloud for the most part as I drove to Newcastle yesterday, I changed my plans en route and drove to Rocky river car park in the hope that the lower western Mournes may be cloud free. My hopes were realized as I approached the car park. I decided that Hen mountain would become the focal point of the walk. The summit can easily be obtained within half an hour from the car park. What makes Hen mountain distinctive is the 4 rocky boulders/tors which are viewed most impressively from nearby Rocky mountain. As I wasn't looking for a long walk I decided to have an exploratory walk around some of the tors. The panorama is very good is most directions. The views include the Spelga group of mountains, Eagle, Rocky and the green countryside around Hilltown. I've decided to post photos as the walk was only 5 km.
