Category: Hill Walk
Distance: 11.5 km
Grading: Medium
Meeting Place: Monda Car Park


Itinerary:
This walk has fantastic countryside, with mountain views in the vicinity of Monda. On leaving the car park the first section is a steep ascent out of Monda village and up past the castle. The walk continues upwards to the Gun and Country Club (currently closed) and then descends into the valley where there is a stream running through (this can be easily crossed). Then it is back up again, steeply out of the valley. Once at the top there is a stop for a break to take in the view and enjoy a snack. The route returns to Monda via an old mule trail for refreshments at the usual bar.
