beautiful view of blessington lakes
by wild_brian  2 May 2016
Parked at ballyknocken picnic area. easily found as marked B by Wicklore. after climbing a into a field an making way through marsh land and over a stream and climbing a couple of fences which i reckon are private farmland and hope the owner didnt mind! the ground was very marshy and boggy after heavy rain fall. i made my way up along side a forest and up a very steep incline. just as i reached the end of the trees i was met by a load of rock which were slippy after the rain. the steep incline caused me to take a few breaks and on turning around got the most amazing views of the blessington lakes. about 2/3 the way up the incline became less steep and more boggy. truth be told the views from the rocks at the top of the forestry were far better than the summit. the summit cairn is lovely although the swampy bog land around it makes getting close to it a little tougher than it should be.
tricky decent back the way i came. CAUTION advised for anyone who has dodgey ankles like myself.
recommend for a beginner but would advise caution. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/113/comment/18514/
