SUITABLE FOR: Mums only!
This regular Tuesday morning meet up is desigined for Mum's to meet up with other parents and have a great adventure in the outdoors without any kids for a couple of hours. Each week we will do a different activity in the Mournes area, followed by teas, coffees and buns to celebrate the awesome adventure we've just had and to make new friends with other parents.
The second week of our Mid-Week Mum's Adventure series will take us to the mountains for a short yet exhilarating hike up the stunning peak of Wee-Binnian, situated right above the Silent Valley reservoir.
On this 2 hour session, we'll meet on the roadside just near Wee Binnian, and set off up the track out onto the open mountain. The initial hiking is gentle, perfect for warming up the leg muscles and getting some much needed chatting in to catch up from the previous week.
As we progress n the open hillside, we soon encounter the famous Mourne Wall, which we then follow up to the right and toward the small but steep summit of Wee-Binnian. We'll take our time on this section to suit everyone's fitness level, with plenty of breaks thrown in as needed, where our mountain leaders can pass on some cool info about the local area - our resident geologist can even teach you why in fact Geology does Rock! (Sorry for the bad jokes, we can't resist sometimes!)
The real adventure option on this hike is then to head up the gully on the front side of the mountain. This is achievable for pretty much everyone, but is not for the faint hearted! alternative routes that are less adventurous are nearby too.
Once on the summit, we'll take in the STUNNING views of the Siletn Valley and the rest of the Mournes all around us, then we'll descend back to the car park for the obligatory tasty buns with fresh hot tea and coffee before sending you off refreshed to pick up the kiddos on time from school - with plenty of great stories to tell the other mum's at the school gates!
