MOURNE SEVEN SEVENS
1st August 2015
Distance: 29 km. Total Ascent: 2,495m.
The Mourne Seven Sevens Walk takes in amongst others the seven higher mountains of the Mourne Mountains. It allows walkers to choose their own routes, which for the most part will consist of summiting Slieve Donard 850m first and then either a clockwise or anti-clockwise route that will have one meeting ones counterparts going the opposite way later in the day. An “unsupported” walk but definitely a nice clean walk which for the most part follows well worn trails and stone tracks that in places trace the incredible Mourne Wall.
