A nice 11km loop that takes in this summit and Knocknalougha
by thomas_g  20 Jan 2012
Nice walk today, Started at carpark above Bay Lough (plenty of parking) at S031101 B, from there follow the Avondhu way west (head towards statue west of carpark to get started) as far as S016097 C, you are now leaving county Waterford and entering the Premier County. On the way to S016097 C you'll pass on old broken style at the edge of a forest at S022094 D, this is where you'll rejoin the Avondhu way from the top of Knocknalougha.
From S016097 C follow the posts to the top of Knockshanahullion S000105 E.
From the trig point at the top of Knockshanahullion, head for the top of Knocknalougha S020100 F, this isn't terribly steep, but can be very slippery, be warned, I almost ended up on my a** a few times. When heading towards Knocknalougha, if you encounter a fence running east-west, keep it on your right it will lead you almost all the way to the flat, fairly uninteresting summit, now stop and enjoy the views (30m visibility today so no views for us).
From the summit head south to S022094 D and retrace your steps to the car park.
A possible alternative that I haven't tried is: from Knocknalougha summit, head north to S017115 G where you'll meet a rough path, follow this path east then south to Bay Lough and follow the trail back to S031101 B to the car. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/188/comment/6657/
