Hi, I'm due to stay near Ards Forest very soon as I did also the last two years. Last year myself and family attempted Muckish climb, I think we went via the Gap route. We got bogged down in horrible wet, sodden ground and couldn't really spot the path up. We aborted the mission sadly :(
Is the Miner's track a more straightforward climb with less boggy land to get through? I'm still determined to get up there!!! I have kids aged 10, and twins aged 8 - all very capable on their feet.
