Bog Trotting Time Again

I can't believe its almost 12 months since last years Bog Trot, the months are flying. Its a sure sign that Spring time is definitely here! We had a ball last year on the Bog Trot with Mike Wall and all the Nire Valley Walking Crew. After spending all my years looking up at the Comeragh's it was nice to get up to the very top and look down. This was something I had said I would do for years but just never got around to it. Its an amazing sight when you get to the top, I didn't know that it actually was like a bog up there! The initial climb up was tough going but well worth the effort. When you get to the top its pretty much flat until you get to the Nire Valley side. Going down was much harder than going up I thought.
If you've no plans for next weekend (Next Saturday 24th March) and you've always wanted to get up there to see what it's like check out the Nire Valley Walking website for more info. There is an A walk and a B+. After all the fresh air you are sure to be worn out so give us a call and we'll sort out a comfy bed for an over night stay at Nells Farmhouse. (086 2206007 / 051 646102).
