Finally got back to walking the Bangor Trail again, after some years away from it. Sinead Tommy and I walked 25k from Bangor to the Bothy in Shramore. We hiked it last Saturday 22nd August. I GPS’d the trip we had a moving average of 4k and an overall average of 3k. It is still the most challenging hike in Ireland, on a waymarked trail. The trail condition is much as it always was, though now the heather is making a return. This has something to do with the National Park and controlled sheep numbers. Below is a picture taken near Mamarata looking south. weather was ok but not picture taking weather.
