Around 350m north of the summit of Knockreagh there's a sharp drop to Lough Napeasta seen as the nearer lake in the picture. Further away two of the Clonee lakes (Upper on the right, middle to the left) are visible as is the Uragh wood (between L. Napeasta and Upper Clonee Lough). This wood and surrounds are a Nature Reserve designated in 1982 and a distinctive habitat listed on Annex I of the E.U. Habitats Directive. It is famous for semi-natural oak and birch. Apparently the Kerry slug can be found and a colony of bats in a deserted house further east and up the valley (right in the picture).

Another way up Knockreagh that is mentioned (though I haven't tried it) starts on the Beara Way at
V831 638 E between the Middle and Upper Clonee Loughs. The Beara Way uses a track which stops north of Knockgarrane, the spur to the left of Lough Napeasta. From the end of the track ascend Knockgarrane. Although the mist and shadowless light softens the impact, note the extremely corrugated nature of terrain of Knockgarrane above the lake described by David Herman [Hillwalker South Kerry and West Cork] ".. the slabs rising from the shore look like a steeply rising ploughed field." He even has a sketch of them. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/456/comment/2240/
