Maumahoge Mountain Lake @ Lough Inagh Valley
Oct 21 all-day

A three-four hour hike up to a mountain pass with a spectacular lake in the wild Maumturks range. Features a stunning mountain valley, with streams and a waterfall, leading up to the pass with the large corrie lake overlooked by dramatic peaks and with views beyond into the adjacent valley and to distant ranges (12 Bens, Joyce Country, Mweelrea, Maumtrasna). Strong mountain boots with ankle support are necessary for the uneven terrain of bog, steep open hillside and rocky lakeside. The distance is about 4km with 400m of total ascent so a reasonable level of fitness is required along with outdoor layers (preferably waterproof jacket/trousers, fleece, hat, gloves), food and water. Costs €45/person, guaranteed to proceed with a couple of places currently available. The weather generally showery and windy.
