A short and easy trip off the M1.
Short Summary created by Harry Goodman,  2 Jun 2014
If approaching from the M1 leave it at J6. Park off road at a wide double gated entrance to a field O1526260153 A and take a wide stoney track up to a fork. Keep left and follow up to another gate and out on to another field. If it is sown out, to avoid disturbing the crop, follow it around by it's right edge and out onto a third field. The trig. pillar marking the top of the hill lies a short way into this field and sits on a small uncultivated raised island of grass and heather O1539059391 B. If crops are sown or unharvested at the time of visit take special care not to disturb them in the short walk out to the top. There is an expansive view out N and W across the flat Meath countryside and S to the start of the Dublin Hills. Just over 1.5km up and back. If in the area near Naul or passing J6 on the motorway it is only a short detour in both time and distance to this small hill. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1321/comment/15565/

Farming Today
by Peter Walker  20 Aug 2014
Just a brief note that the field surrounding the trig point on Knockbrack is currently very definitely planted (with something that a suburbanite such as myself can't identify...doesn't look like weeds, I know that much) and as such care should be taken to locate the tractor trail leading past the pillar. In the pic the summit is on the summit is pretty much on the skyline where the track meets it. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1321/comment/17619/

Farmer confusion
by muschi  20 Jan 2014
I parked at O 15251 60134 C. Crossed the gate and headed up the track, kept to the left, when the track forked, through a gate, into an other field and past the remains of a ring fort and into the next field, where there is a trig pillar.
Met Onzy as I returned to the jeep, he thought I was the landowner and was about to ask permission, when I asked him if he was from Mountain Views. Initially I had thought he was the landowner about challange me for entering his property. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1321/comment/15796/

Near Bog 'O' Ring......
by Fergalh  1 Mar 2014
Go south of Naul turn left up road underneath hill. The trig pillar is behind radio mast in adjoining field.

Always ask landowner permission to cross land, never ever damage fences and beware of livestock. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1321/comment/15795/
