Short Summary created by jackill,  11 Jun 2011
The usual way to get to the summit is to park at Clydagh bridge forest entrance R87450 27780 A ht137m, where there is parking on both sides of the road. Walk up the tarred road to a stile, R87796 27461 B ht189m(note: no dogs sign here), cross the stile and walk the rough track near the forest edge before crossing a wire fence via stile, R88590 27213 C ht358m and then on to the summit.
The summit (no cairn or marker)is a fantastic viewpoint for the glacier ravaged north face of the Galty range.
Many would use this as a start point for a fine circuit of Clydagh continuing on to Galtybeg,Galtymore and Slievecushnabinnia.
Cush can also be climbed from the directiion of Knockastakeen using Galty Waterworks as an access track, there are options to park on the road or in the small carpark(where you can also walk to Lough Muskry) at R91547 28065 D. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/215/comment/4975/
