Mourne Madness Extreme is so long that we can't fit the whole route on one page.....


So, please read the Intermediate route description and we will pick the route up from Hare's Gap.


From here begins a relentless climb as we reach first the North Tor and then the Summit Tor of Slieve Bearnagh (739m).  This will be your third 700m peak of the day and the sense of achievement will be immense.  Now all you have to do is to get home.....


Descending steeply back down Bearnagh the way we came, and continuing onto the Brandy Pad (an old smugglers' route), we travel through the heart of the Mournes with the stunning Silent Valley below us, before returning to The Saddle and back to Donard Park.


The total return distance is 20km, with 1600 metres of ascent and descent.   Bring plenty of food, water and a head-torch!


Your guides will take care of all route-finding for the group, however, if you are interested in the full route description then please click the below map.
