Up the Turf Road
Short Summary created by jackill,  30 Dec 2013
One way to climb this mountain is by taking the second road to your left on the Dublin side of Kilbeheny where there is a signpost marked "Galtycastle".
Follow this minor road uphill ignoring the turn-off to the right (also signposted Galtycastle) and taking the left hand fork up a cul de sac at the Y junction after it.
After travelling a further 2 kms on this tarred road you will come to a locked gate. Parking here is very tight for even one car on the roadside.
Walk through the gate and over a small concrete bridge to the left. Follow a rough track past a shed and up the Blackrock river valley to its end.
This road was used as an access point for the turf cuttings on the mountains surrounding it during the Second World War. the turf was used to fire the boilers in the nearby Mitchelstown Creamery.
Then walk north east uphill to the col between Lyracappul and Knockaterriff Beg and from there to the summit.
Descent from Knockaterriff to the south is possible , however it is steep and slippery so care is needed. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/121/comment/4881/
