Since 2015 specialised trail repair training has occurred.  This has resulted in new skills being taught and put into practice.


Water management features such as water bars and cross drains have been constructed by hand.  Lighting works have also been developed to help people stay on the path.  This ongoing and extensive training is done through the Reeks Project.



Signage was installed on the 4 main access points to Carrauntoohil and the Reeks.

  • Breanlee in Glencar
  • Cronin's Yard in Mealis
  • Lisleibane in Beaufort
  • Strickeen in the Gap of Dunloe
