Took this hike today. Could have gone most of the way up the road but that wasnt a challenge so we decided on about the 2nd bend on the road to climb up into the heather and make our way across. It was challenging to say the least. The wind was roaring, the rain was pouring and I had a 6 yr old in toe but it was very enjoyable until we got to the top to realize we were fenced in by a 10ft fence to stop us getting near the hydro electric reservoir!! Had to scale down the side of the mountain using the road as a guide which was great as the weather was disimproving by the minute and eventually got to a point where we could hook up with the road to go back down the rest of the way by way of jumping across the ditch. All in all was very enjoyable but no summit to speak of so we had to pick a point and then celebrate our hike :)Lizzie Murray18/05/2012
