To give increase the downhill travel on the return journey, I started off from Valleymount. To reduce the amount climbing I went back along the Hollywood road, but I will never repeat that mistake. Go back along the same route no matter what direction you started from.

ballinagee bridge entrance to the forest

A short distance from the bridge  along the road the route enters a forest.

A place to get your feet wet (again), before leaving the forest. The rest of the route follows a rural lane.

The hard climb along the lane to the ridge below the summit of Silsean Mountain.
