Short Summary created by paddyhillsbagger, wicklore,  14 Aug 2011
Forth Mountain commands fine views of the surrounding Wexford countryside and coast, including Wexford Town and out to the Saltee Islands. Forth Mountain also gives views out to Tuskar Rock, which is said to be responsible for more shipwrecks than any other Irish coastal feature - one hundred and seventy-six shipwrecks are attributed to it. Also in 1968 an Aer Lingus plane crashed near it with the loss of all 61 people on board.

Forth Mountain is farmed almost all the way to the summit, making access difficult. There are a number of masts and communications towers at the summit and the most obvious access track passes through private land and a farm. The access track to the summit through the farm starts at S984 196 A, although the owners have requested no access due to fears of livestock getting loose or their farm being blocked. The best thing is to try and speak to somebody, and if you have no luck respect their wishes and navigate around the hill to another access point. There is an alternative approach through forestry tracks to the south of the hill that can be found by following the road that contours the hill at about 200 metres altitude.
By using access track at S984 190 B you can avoid going through the farm by turning right before it on side track which presumedly is used for servicing the masts. There are no gates on this route but best to leave car on small layby close to access point as it's only a short walk to summit. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1013/comment/5772/
