Modest hill with an access issue.
Short Summary created by aidand,  18 Aug 2015
From Kinnitty village take the road South towards Roscrea. Take the first turn left signposted 'Slieve Bloom Mountains'. Drive 1.1 miles up this road until you reach a white house on your left. Park here and then walk up the track and cross the gate into the forest. The forest road leads directly to the summit. Close to the summit a fence has been erected across the road with 'No Trespassing' signs. Car to car takes about 45 minutes. Most of the walk is in coniferous forest with limited views.

Easy climb really....

Head south from Kinnity village and take first turn right, eventually you will come to a white house on its own with a track behind (N1962702722 A). Park here and climb gate and follow forest track after 200 metres follow forest ride on the right hand side all the way up until tou come to crossroad . Than turn left and proceed to the summit. The summit will have a lot of old decidious trees on the left hand side of the track Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1106/comment/15811/

Helpful route ignored.
by paddyhillsbagger  15 Feb 2014
I should have read Fergalh's route before choosing a cross country bash through tall gorse, boggy paths and conifer plantations only to find a track bisecting the summit of this hill! Followed the path down and was simplicity itself. Could have saved myself a tough trek up an easy bag! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1106/comment/15857/
