Short Summary created by Colin Murphy,  23 Apr 2015
Take road directly north from Kenmare (following Kerry Way). Note: after 1km main road swings NW, but take the fork to the right and continue for 4km until you come to a T-junction, with the Kerry Way a track directly ahead. Turn right here and continue for 1km until the road ends in a farm. You will see a sort of fork, with the left option blocked by a gate leading to a building, and the right option leading into a farmyard. Parking for a couple of cars here. (Point 925 758 A) The friendly lady of the farmhouse was happy to allow access to the substantial track to the north. From parking spot, taking the fork to the left, cross the gate and walk beyond the building where you will immediately see a well-formed track. Follow this for just over 1km where it deteriorates to a rougher track that is quite muddy in places but well defined. After another 1km, Knockrower will be obvious to the NE (assuming weather is clear.) just 1.5km away. (Point 927 780 B). Leave the track and head east across open country - the initial stages are a gentle slope but a little boggy underfoot, even after prolonged dry spell. Terrain improves at elevation of 400m where slope becomes steeper, a mixture of short grass and rocks, but easily navigable. Continue NW for another 500m to attain summit - a large rocky outcrop topped by a single large boulder, itself topped by a pile of stones marking high point. From car to summit allow 1 hour 15 minutes. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/354/comment/5114/
