This hill is unnamed on OS maps, but it is mentioned in the Parliamentary Gazetter of Ireland: Collon-hill, 3¾ miles south-south-west of Wicklow, 782 feet. James Fraser describes in more detail in A Hand Book for Travellers in Ireland: Two miles to the seaward of Kilboy bridge [near Kilbride] is the Hill of Collon. It attains an elevation of 782 feet and is remarkable as rising considerably over the lower hills with which the surface of the country is varied; and from it an extensive view of the coast and country around are obtained. The townlands of Cullen Upper and Lower appear to have the same name in a variant spelling. For origin of name, see also Collin Top and Big Collin (Co. Antrim). Has been called Castletimon Hill.   Collon Hill is the 1303th highest summit in Ireland. Collon Hill is the second most easterly summit in the Dublin/Wicklow area.

Just back from climbing this hill. Was expecting fun crawling through the furze as mentioned above but to my surprise a track to the summit now exists! Follow the route as described by Wicklore, there now a defined track across the summit, (thanks to our scrambling friends. As you follow this track, watch out for one your left, the fallen pine tree with a lone pine tree close by. The track to the summit at this point. somebody has cut a track through the furze to the summit. To return to the parking spot return to the pine tree and continue along the track. This brings you to the southern side of the mountain and follow the forest roads from there. About 90 minutes all in. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1011/comment/6321/
