This moderate walk inside Killarney National Park is exploring the easternmost part of Shehy mountain at an elevation of 500-600 metres without reaching the summit of Shehy at 762 metres high. A remote area, with excellent view of Killarney Town & Lakes.
The route through Tomies Wood walking trail first, then a short but steep enough climb over high heather with no defined path to reach an elevation of 500-600. A very nice flat like part of the mountain to enjoy walking, have lunch break, and take some pictures.
A slow pace to descend through the tricky eastern slopes of Shehy. With view over the thick rhododendron 'forest' at the shore of Lough Leane. We back to Tomies Wood to complete the full loop walk on a relaxed green road heading to the car park.
