Leenane Hill stands imposingly over the village of Leenane, it is part of the famous Maumturks mountains and blends a tough but rewarding hike in all aspects. The walk starts from Leenane Village with a steady climb to the Eastern shoulder and turns Westward to the 618 spot height at Leenane Hill.
The walk then continues westward along the summit line and the views open up of the Killary Fjord and North Connemara. The walk descends to the Western Way trail and back to the village. The terrain is quite boggy but firm on the climbs and the top is dry with mossy ridge lines. Appropriate footwear is essential.
