Forest walk
by hazyview  9 Oct 2010
Highest point in Co Westmeath. We (family including a double-buggy!) climbed this one weekend by following one of the trails through the forest from the car park. However, there may be a better way, as I ended up scrambling through brambles & over a fence to find the actual summit. The great thing about climbing in this relatively flat area is that you can see huge distances after a fairly short climb and the landmarks you spot are easily identifiable.
