Bog avoidance
by csd  18 Apr 2010
Having read the dire warnings of the bogs and hostile land owners, I elected to approach Moylussa from Ballycuggaran forest car park. Not having a copy of Sheet 58, I experimented with printing off a screen grab of the relevant area from the OSI website. While this was reasonably successful, the dense network of forest tracks in this area and the somewhat ropey definition of my printout meant for a rather more stressful navigation exercise than usual. In the end I followed the East Clare Way trail markers and left the path west uphill at the 'No scramblers or quad bikes' sign, GR R66230 75896 E, across the forest clearing.
This approach requires a small amount of forest bashing, but since it's a mature plantation it wasn't too hard. It also seems to avoid the notorious boggy track, or at least the start of it. Once through the short forest section, Moylussa presents a brutally convex slope, so it's a slog up to the relatively flat summit area. As others have noted, it's relatively flat and very boggy. If Lough Derg wasn't there you could almost mistake it for somewhere in the Slieve Blooms.
While the forest tracks are nice and dry, on this particular day they were plagued by three individuals on scrambler bikes haring around the place. Noisy and dangerous. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/390/comment/4643/
