Glencar Escarpment to Kings Mountain - (Fully Booked) Guided Hike

This hike is in my opinion one of the most beautiful and scenic in the entire county.
Our route commences at Glencar Lake and climbs upward on the old bog road. The hike continues along the escarpment overlooking Glencar lake and across the top of the Devil's chimney waterfall. Kings mountain is clearly seen at this stage. The route will pass along by the old Barytes mines and soon we will be looking down into Pinnacle Gully before reaching Kings mountain. 
We will descend Kings Gully via a cross which commemerate the Nobel 6, a memorial to those who were killed on this mountain in the bitter war of independance.

The hike will take approx. 4 to 5 hours to complete at a gentle pace.

Difficulty level: Moderate. Well within the reach of good regular walkers.
