Hike over the Caha Pass and cool your bones in a beautiful mountain top lake
Pack hiking boots and togs.
The Caha Pass is calling your name this weekend; West Cork Hikes is organising a challenging 12km hike along the Cork and Kerry border that will finish up with a stunning descent into Barley Lake.
Barley Lake is a glacial corrie lake that was formed in the Ice Age (around 10,000 years ago) when a melting glacier left a crater behind on the mountainside, creating one of the most picturesque destinations in West Cork.
And when you reach the isolated spot, you can tog out and head for a swim in the fresh water while soaking up the rays and enjoying breathtaking views of the Beara Peninsula if the day is clear.
