Easy ramble
Short Summary created by aidand,  15 Aug 2014
Take the road south out of Kinnitty in the direction of Roscrea. Take the first turn left. Drive along this road for two miles until you see an entrance to the forest on the right. There is room to park a few cars here. Follow the forest road, keeping right at the Y junction. Ignore the next two right hand turns. Take the third turn right. This will bring you close to the summit, which is a grassy mound just off the forest road. Car to car takes less than an hour. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1124/comment/15368/

Flat Top
by paddyhillsbagger  15 Feb 2014
Was a little disappointed when I got to the flattish top of Cumber Hill and looked around for signs of a Hill Fort which I failed to find. There were a series of ditches which could have been the earthworks but no signs of stones. I did find 2 deer happily chewing on the heather and a tree at the cross roads of fences which serves as a suitable summit point. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1124/comment/15856/

Stone age hill fort remains on summit
by Fergalh  1 Feb 2014
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. Drive past this and ignore turn to left soon you will come to forest entrance on right hand side (N1994601580 A). Park here and climb gate and follow forest track all the way to the end of the stone track. Than turn right and follow grassy track around 200 metres to fence. Proceed through gap in fence and turn right and walk up through through field around 200 metres to summit ,The remains of old hill fort are faintly visible here.
