Starting in Kiltyclogher take the R281 to Rossinver (Ros Inbhir). At the junction turn left and immediately right onto the L2107 following the signs for Fowley’s Falls and cycling signs for the Barr climb/The Gates of Glan. 

1km up this road the entrance to the Falls is on your right. A series of pathways brings you down to the river to see the spectacular falls. From here the route continues up the L2107. At the next junction follow the cycling sign for The Gates of Glan. This brings you up to the south side of the Glenaniff valley.

At the top of the valley keep right following the cycling sign for the Barr Climb. This brings you back along the north of the valley. After 8km take the left turn for the Barr climb.

From here you continue the descent – Extreme caution is needed on this descent as it’s a narrow road with two hair-pin corners across small bridges. At the Stop sign turn right onto the R281 towards Rossinver. At the T junction turn right for Rossinver, then after 2km turn left for Kiltyclogher (Kilty Braes cycling sign) back to your starting point.
