This route take you up trails to the site of Seefin Passage Tomb which was built about 5,000 years ago.
Passage-Graves are set in round earthen tombs. The chamber is approached with two stones bearing concentric diamond-like motifs resembling the human face. The burial chamber has two side-chambers on each side and one at the back. On the roof stone of the chamber near the entrance bears a decoration consisting of five lines. The grave has probably been open for a long time, as an Early Christian equal-armed cross can be seen on one of the roofing stones. Being situated on the top of a mountain, a climb up to it is worth it for the view alone.
WARNING: There is no marked trail up to the tomb so on a cloudy day, finding your way to and back can be challenging.
