Meeting outside Hanafin’s bar Annascaul at 10:00 we walk the familiar road towards Bunaneer. We then ascend the short steepest section of the circuit.  This leads up towards the three peaks of Meelin. There is some heather and a little gorse but overall the path is easy. Before the last and highest peak there is a boggy area and waterproof boots are necessary. It also can be slippery on the descent to the paved road at Maum.
