For this summit, there are parking spaces for a few cars at V917 752 A, where the public road meets the start of a dirt track going Northwards. This is part of the Kerry Way and used to be the old road from Killarney to Kenmare in the 19th Century. As you pass between Peakeen and Knockanguish, stop at the highest point on the road and turn off left. Stay to the North of Peakeen to avoid the cliffs. After the ascent and as soon as the ground levels out, you will see the trig point high up on Peakeen to your left. Carry on a bit further and try and approach the summit from the North / North-West where the going is easier. The most striking thing on the summit is the trig point which is mounted on the highest rock and really stands out. Despite the fact it is just 555 metres, the views from it are stunning and are better than many other higher peaks. Return by the same route and avoid the cliffs and crags to the East. Done in conjunction with Knockanaguish, it would make for a really nice 3 hour walk on a clear sunny day. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/348/comment/2302/
