Parked up in a small parking space beside a Bronte Trail info sign, at roughly 178375 B, where we crossed an awkward fence topped by barbed wire. We crossed several more fences and negotiated areas of windbush and thistles before arriving at, what appeared to be a water pumping station, with an access track. We followed this track up hill, through a couple of gates, and sure enough it wound up hill to the summit of Knockiveagh, with its trig point just below the summit. From the summit the views of the main Mourne mountains are superb, this was my last summit in the Mournes Group and despite the rough start it was well worth the visit. On the descent we stuck to the track, which turned into a cemented lane, arriving out at a minor road round 183374 A by a private lane sign. From here it was only a short walk back to the car via Knock Terrace. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1015/comment/4189/
