A breeze of a walk
Short Summary created by wicklore,  8 Apr 2014
There is an approved access route starting at S93758 32578 A. Here there is a narrow trail with a signpost for Bree Hill showing walkers and cyclists. (Really only suitable for mountain biking). You can park just down the road at S93730 32513 B. Follow the narrow trail until you meet a forestry track. Turn right and then at S93676 32935 C turn left into the trees and make your way through the trees uphill. This is an interesting experience and a bit odd due to some unusual tunnelling amongst the trees. Heading northwest you will emerge after a few hundred metres at the summit area and come out onto the bike track. The immediate summit area has been deforested and was (in August 2012) a quite overgrown flattish area. The bike/walker trail passes about 50 metres to the south of the summit highpoint which appears to be a small overgrown rocky outcrop in a general area of messy brambles and other greenery. This is a short walk taking about 40 minutes return. Limited views due to forestry and tangled growth around summit area. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1315/comment/15559/

A nice start to a walk
by wicklore  8 Apr 2014
The start point of this walk is a stroll along a quaint boreen past a ruin of an old cottage before emerging onto forestry tracks. A short walk that is more memorable for some unusual forestry and a tangled summit area than the views.

A Breeze
by eamonoc  11 Apr 2014
Climbed 4/4/204. Started at S 93758 32578, on a very narrow boreen above the village of Bree. There is a brown wodden sign here with Bree Hill written on it, room to park here for one car. Headed up a good forest path and took the first right onto a larger forest track follwed this took another right at a fork in the path always heading uphill until just before a wooden bench is reached on the left. Headed left uphill into the forest following a faint track until a mountain bike course is reached higher up, went left here along this path and the summit area is the obvious high ground to the left of this path, there are a lot of fallen trees around the summit area. Total time car to car 37mins, distance approx 2.3km Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1315/comment/15968/
