Benbradagh Mountain (Irish: An Bhinn Bhradach – Thief’s Peak)
Benbradagh Mountain falls within the Sperrins Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, overlooking Dungiven at the gateway to the Glenshane Pass. A short climb along the old “American Road” (the area was used by the US Navy as a communications base during the Cold War) provides some of the finest views around to the southern Sperrins and to Donegal.
It is the second most northerly summit in the Sperrin Mountains area. Its summit rises to 465 m (1525 ft). It should be noted that whilst popular with walkers, this is an open mountain – ground conditions will be rough and variable and the walk can be challenging in inclement weather.
Benbradagh is a favourite spot for para gliders and hang gliders and a great place to experience when visiting County Londonderry.
