A great place to be on a sunny afternoon !!

Climbed this mountain as the last of a five-summit trip, starting from the hairpin at approx. S043118 A, also including Sugarloaf Hill, Knockmoylan, Knockmealdown and Knockalougha. As I approached the summit I came out of the clouds I had encountered on top of Knockalougha and enjoyed the first rays of sunshine of the day. Better late than never !! Amazing views from the top, especially towards the Galtees to the NW. The mound of stones described by other members is quite impressive. The pic attached shows the circular stone shelter described by simon3. I had decided to descend the eastern slopes, and thus started a long slog to reach Bay Lough via one of the tracks that runs along the forestry N of Knockalougha. After a few minutes, the ground became very slippery, so I "escaped" through knee-high heather and fern which offered firmer -if not less difficult- terrain. The descent was quite steep in some places. Jumped over a stream flowing down along the NW slopes of Knockalougha and finally reached a faint track at approx. S012110 B which soon took me... to a steep gully littered with impenetrable 4-5m-high rhododendrons. I veered N/downhill to reach the most northerly path shown on the OS map, N of Knockalougha. Crossed the gully and its stream at approx. S017115 C. At this point, the path winds its way down and up through a "tunnel" of rhododendrons which prevent light from peering through -and thus any other kind of vegetation from growing- and actually hardly allows you to walk through without having to crawl with a torch !! Some other parts of the track that leads down to Bay Lough are also covered by these "tunnels". Unless you are equipped with a machete and/or enjoy tough terrain, I would not recommend descending this way, but retracing your steps along the ridge eastbound towards Knockalougha and down to the Vee.
