Malbekh - Trails
Hi Malbekh. I assume you mean to park at R893 203 at the start of the Black road. You are probably familiar with the Black road and know it finisheds under Galtybeg - from there its a muddy, eroded 750 mtrs approx to the col between Galtymore and Galtybeg. Aim to come out on the cliff edge above Lough Diheen at approx 886 240 then walk around the cliff edge towards Galtymore to 883 238 where you can finally turn away from the cliff edge and head straight for the summit. This approach allows you to avoid the worst of the terrain/mud.
If you intend to descend to the south east I presume you will be heading for the Attychraan River at approx 885 222 above the forestry edge marked on the map. To do this you will have first go west from the summit of Galtymore(straight down is tough/tricky even without a bike) for approx 0.75 kms to 872 235 at a height of approx 825 mtrs and descend form there via Knockduff and Knocknagalty , there are no tracks /trails down from this area.Once on the Flattish area of Knocknagalty head east to meet the stream/forestry edge at 885 222.The stream at this time of the year is quite low and should be easy to cross at this stream junction. Once across try to find the track marked on the map starting at 886 221 which will bring you back onto the Black road.

If you wanted to you could also (by hopping a sheep/barbed wire fence and going down a steep bank for 3-4 mtrs) cross the river farther down at approx 885 217 and join a trail that runs all the way along the Attychraan to the tarred road and car park at 879 188. You could then use the tarred roads marked on the map to intersect with the road (902 185)leading back to your car.
I hope you find this of use-please feel free to ask any questions you may have.

Topped Mountain: Short & simple

A simple little Minion to climb (the name Topped 'Mountain' is a bit of a stretch). A gravel path & steps from a carpark will see you reach the top in about 15 minutes, and you won't even need you...

Crockmulroney: Good summit for Carn-baggers
Colin Murphy 6 days ago.
A fine hill with a well defined summit and great views. Plenty of parking spots along the R254 directly to the south of the summit. From there it's a relatively simple 1km climb to the top.
