Forth on the Fourth
by eamonoc  6 Jan 2012
Eamonoc. Left Wexford on the N25 turned right onto R733 at Duncannon Rd Roundabout. Turned right onto L3072 at Hayes Mountain Bar, turn left at 2nd crossroads, after about 3mins driving when Forth Mt comes into view on the right, look out for an obvious stoney path which leads to the summit, there is space to park on the left for one car. 5mins easy walking will see you on the summit. Fine views over Weford harbour an all around, just ignore the vast array of masts that adorn this summit. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1013/comment/6650/
