Climb to the summit of Moylussa with stunning views of Lough Derg far below as the sun rises. The sunrise hike to Moylussa will start at Two Mile Gate carpark. The trail will follow some forestry tracks and small small trails as we gain some height. As we get closer to the top there is a short, steep climb to the board walk and then it is a straight forward walk to the summit. Depending on group pace, ability and weather we will return via Feenlea mountain or back the way we came up. This hike takes in some stunning views and as the sun rises we will be able to see more and more of Lough Derg and the surrounding countryside.
