Good track up but seek permission to use it.
Short Summary created by Harry Goodman,  30 May 2014
There is a good track that leads all the way to the top. However access to it is through the grounds of a house located at J0659818435 A and permission to use it should therefore be sought. From the rear of the house pass through a gate and follow the track up as it twists and turns to the top. The last couple of hundred metres of track is along a peat and grass surface with patches of bog. There are fine views across to Slieve Gullion (NW) and to the Cooley Mts (E). The walk up and back is about 2.5 km. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1225/comment/15469/
