Parking beside forest entrance S5437702608 A walk in track keeping left at waterworks and after app 40m at S5459602442 B turn left uphill over a faint track which will bring you to the clearing shown in photo, the location of some late night raves. The summit is further on in the heavy foliage. I visited various spots just to be on the safe side, hopefully in the near future the experts with the proper equipment will verify same. Although this area has numerous walking trails the summit in its present state is not visitor friendly . Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1494/comment/18281/

A pleasant road walk with one good view - and then no view at all
by Pepe  11 Jul 2015
Parked the car at the Fenor Bog carpark and walked up a quiet winding road to the lesser of the two Ballyscanlan Hills - the one with the cross on it which can be seen from miles around. Here the views are excellent. Access to the cross is over some agricultural land but there isn't any obvious door to knock on to ask permission. The walk from road to cross is short, perhaps five minutes. After that, we returned to the road and continued uphill, taking the right-hand fork up to the taller of the two hills (the left-hand route will take you down by Ballyscanlan Lake). Turn right at the waterworks. There is a path here that leads down to Carrickavantry Reservoir. The trick here is to turn left into the trees and make your way to the highest point, which is not difficult to get to. However there are zero views because of tree growth! Return downhill to Fenor - the entire walk comes to maybe four miles, most of it on roads though traffic is minimal - and treat yourself to refreshments in Mother McHugh's, the only pub in Fenor and one of the best in the south-east.
