This walk will follow the Glen River as it tumbles down through Donard Park Forest. This must be one of the most beautiful rivers in Ireland with rocks and cascades along its entire length. David will determine which route we will take to reach the summit of Donard. On reaching the Great Cairn and the summit, there will hopefully be the chance to take in the panoramic views of the eastern coastline, much of County Down and beyond, and yet another view of the rest of the Mournes range in its unique diversity. There are a number of options about decent from the summit and before leaving, the car park, David will have discussed this.
