One way of reaching the summit is as follows. Leave the Inistioge to Graiguenamanagh road near Sackinstown (S 677 423 E) Go SE along an unsurfaced road into the forest (where the road becomes surfaced) to a point near 685 412 F. Turn left onto the South Leinster Way. By following various tracks, mostly shown on the OS, arrive at S698 412 G, which is a substantial vehicle park at around 332m. (This position was taken by GPS, the tracks on the OS may not be totally accurately shown.) Beyond this, the road deteriorates. From the NE corner of this car park there is a well used track which will lead you to the summit along a ride, a track and over heather. You can actually drive to the car park if you wish to, though beware of bumps and ridges in the road.

Various patches of town lighting are visible in this night view from the summit hinting at the very large area, including coastline, that can be seen. The main patch of light shown here, looking approximately SE, is probably New Ross. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/423/comment/765/
