A short initial ascent brings us to the ridge leading NE to an Cnoc Maol Mór (493m). This gets steeper as we climb but is actually very manageable. Continuing NE we descend to the valley floor to cross the narrow beginnings of the Garfinny river, aiming then for Slievenea (aka known as Slieve Mhaca Ré) @ 620m approx. From there we head North and skirt around to pick up the wall that will leads down the ridge to the western side of Loch Cam Callaun. The forestry at Kilmore is our next target, crossing the R560 Tralee-Dingle road and walking back up to Connor Pass in a SW direction via the old Green Road. From Connor Pass we again cross the R560 and continue down along the next section of the same Green Road, which will bring us back to our starting point at Coumbowler.
