Wicklow Way Easy Access
Short Summary created by jackill, Trailtrekker,  4 Jan 2016
The Wicklow Way passes over the western and southern flanks of this hill and can be used to provide access to the summit from either side. It is a pleasant walk, with good views when there is a break in the treeline.

There is limited parking O18095 15925 A from where you head south east along the forest track following the Wicklow Way. This is a gentle ascent to O18826 15270 B where you leave the way and make a hairpin left turn to continue following forest track up to a bench at a viewpoint O18367 15756 C where the forest track ends. From here it is a matter of following a narrow but well defined track to the unmarked but clear summit. (Make sure to go the whole way to the end of this narrow track!)

An alternative start point is at O190 150 D near the Glencree hostel. There is more ample parking at this point. This approach is shorter in distance, but starting from a lower height and has a steeper ascent. Again it is a matter of following the way to O18826 15270 B where you head for the summit as described above.

Note: Unlike what is shown on the maps, the entire top of this hill is forested! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1100/comment/15344/

Dont Knock it
by elarbee  11 Oct 2014
Made this walk from the Knockree youth hostel, head about 200m along the road from the hostel to find the entrance to he forest path at point D (pictured). Just keep following the path until you reach the clearing at point C, walk around the bench and follow the track up to the summit. This part of the track is narrow and has a number of thistles, so wouldn't advise taking this path wearing shorts. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1100/comment/17722/

Model way to Navigation
by eamonoc  21 Mar 2014
Climbed this morning in fantastic weather, once again followed directions from previous comments started at 018095 E 15925. A lovely 15min walk along good forest tracks brought me to the bench overlooking Glencree and then 5mins along a narrow muddy track through some heather and gorse brought me to the top, this path is well defined. Nice views from summit. Headed back down hill saw a song thrush and thought to myself, that`s all I am going to meet today. A bit closer to the starting point there were a group of people on the path. They were either making a commercial or some form of navigation instructional short film. The very glam looking lady in all black with the ruck sac was issuing instructions about compass bearings and lining up maps, she would have come in handy last Friday on Keelogeyboy Mt as the weather in Sligo was a bit challenging!

Rough gorse track to summit
by Fergalh  1 Feb 2014
Turn off glencree road where the wicklow way trail heads south. Park at Knockree forest entrance (O18095 15925), than follow track all the way to bench, it loops back again shortly after where the wicklow way goes downhill. At the bench follow rough track through gorse to the summit Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1100/comment/15805/
