|Start & Finish||Ahakista Trailhead - beside Arundel's Pub|
|Duration||2 hrs 45 mins (?)|
From the car park, follow the green arrows west towards Kilcrohane, turning right after 150m for Ahakista Church, & immediately left (sign for Baran). This loop follows minor roadways, laneways and mountain paths to the top of Rosskerrig Mountain, following the Ahakista Stream for part of the way. The ascent contains some fairly steep climbs. On Rosskerrig Mountain the Baran trail turns left downhill, where fantastic mountain, coastal and sea views abound. This walking trail passes a number of burial grounds & the Átha Thomáis memorial en-route to the main public road, where the trail turns left back towards Ahakista Bridge and the Trailhead.
