Parking for this short climb is at the entrance to Knock Resevior Lower (just past the private lane at 183374 A) where there is room for several cars.

The covered resevoir extends up the hillside surrounded by a high fence, simply cross the gate into the field and follow the fence uphill to a line of trees. Another field brings a track which can be followed easily to the summit, reached in 10 minutes!

The top has what looks like an old burial cairn, which has collapsed. A trig pillar stands about 30 ft and slightly lower - overlooking the higher covered resevoir. Stunning views to the western most Mournes, with the Hares Gap, Hen, Cock, eagle and more in view.

Return quite simply the way came up. Over in a flash but a really nice viewpoint for its height and a picnic would not have been out of place! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1015/comment/6091/
