Its a Beech! (forest)
Short Summary created by jackill,  26 Jan 2011
Turn off the country lane at N48160 77460 A and enter a well kept Coillte forest.
Park in the large carpark. Time to complete , 1 hour .
There are 3 developed walking routes here. A variation on the Red route will get you to the summit. Follow the track to N47016 78953 B, then to N46758 79127 C and turn right uphill to gain the treeless summit. Cross the summit and follow the track downhill to N47424 79131 D, following any of the tracks here downhill will take you back to the carpark.

Fine views from the summit across Lough Sheelin but its the airy, peaceful light of the Beech forest that makes this a truly special place. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1050/comment/5809/
