Short hike in the blackstairs
by Kennyj  15 Feb 2015
Climbed Knockroe today on a cloudy misty morning.Parking at the sculloge gap I walked along the road for 400 metres before turning right onto Shannon's lane.This lane way services a couple of farms and the locals I met were very friendly and helpful.Following this laneway uphill past forestry on the right I continued on to the end of this track before branching off to the left into a less well defined and sometimes difficult to follow track uphill to the summit.With visabilty down to a couple of feet I located the ruins of what is marked as the Roundhouse on my East West map and then went about locating the holy year cross.After walking around in circles in the thick fog I was about to give up my search when the clouds lifted and there in front of me in all its glory was the cross like an apparition.With the clouds lifting I made my way back down onto the laneway and back the way I came.Time taken one hour fifty minutes with an altitude of 400 metres.An enjoyable walk which in a fine day would give some great views.
