An easy bog trot.
Short Summary created by jackill,  9 Jun 2010
This is an easy walk starting from the large carpark at W34900 86100 A and following the track (which is show as part of the Dulhallow way on the Discovery map) past bog works and the access road to Seefins mast covered summit (491m) for approx. 1.5 kms until it starts to turn downhill.

When it does go straight across the bog to W36928 86307 B and you will see a Duhallow way marker post. Enter the forest on a narrow , boggy pathway to emerge at a forestry turning point at W37142 86332 C .

Cross the clearing and head directly up a overgrown but passable ride to the summit coordinates. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/484/comment/5243/

Rotten Stick and mound intact!
by eamonoc  29 May 2015
Climbed on Thurs 28/5/2015. Having read previous comments was fearing a horrible push through dense forestry
to access the actual summit of this hill. I had a look a google earth for this area and clearly visible was a forest ride
which passed close to the top. So after visiting Seefin I headed east towards Seefin East top. Followed a well made track to
W 36669 86292 D, headed towards forest that covers Seefin E top. Followed forest edge to the right, keeping it on my left going uphill to
W 37606 86057 E, there is a very obviuos wide forest ride going steeply uphill to the left followed it to W 37553 86372 F
form here went into trees to my immediate left, a push through of approx 10mts and I found old rotten stick with stone
mound surrounded by trees. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/484/comment/18007/

Aha Mr.Tempan, it is but a trick of the light, the top is certainly disguised by trees but it is not covered by them. Enter the forest in your photo at W36928 86307 next to the Duhallow way marker and walk through the forest to the clearing at W37142 86332 and here go straight ahead aiming directly for the summit co-ords given here on Mountainviews. While I cannot say it is pleasent, it is short and uncomplicated. Return by the same way. Hurry though as the forest is encroaching on this access point all the time!

Although I am the first to comment on this peak, I must confess that I have not visited the top. We looked at it from a distance of about 500m and decided there were better ways to spend an afternoon. (No, we did not head off to the pub! - we went on to Glannafreaghaun and "The City"/Cathair Cróbh Dearg at the N foot of the Paps). Two MV members claim to have done Seefin E Top. As it is covered with dense conifers, I would be curious to know what route they took and whether they can recommend it. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/484/comment/3455/

Surprise cairn at summit...but try finding it!
by Conor74  1 Jan 2013
Approached from the west having completed Seefin. Walked from there almost due east to the forest and up an old track. About half way up the trail ended at a new forest road that ran across the route, couldn't pick up the trail on the other side. So battled onwards and upwards, through densely packed trees covered in moss, peering for higher and higher patches of ground, till I coudn't find any more.

And eureka!

By a pure fluke spotted an old moss covered cairn with a rotting post sticking out in a tiny clearing that would be almost invisible from a few metres away. From the considerable rock around it, it might have been a large enough cairn before the forest enclosed it, roots pushed into it, and it fell apart. It clearly hadn't been touched by human hand for a long time. Continued east and pushed through a few more metres of thickly packed trees before emerging in the fire break/trail which I think is that identified by Jackill. From there it was south to the edge of the forest and west back to the approach road by Seefin.

Incidentally, for those who like such things, both Seefin and its sibling East Top have the same height, 491 metres. Even the Paps don't have that symmetry. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/484/comment/14897/

Picture: Passable?
Am I ever going to get rid of the pine needles
by thomas_g  6 Apr 2012
I followed the route described by Jackill (thanks for that you'd never find it otherwise). The Duhallow way section is passable, but the ride from the forest clearing to the summit needs to be revised to barely passable. It was an absolutely horrid experience and I'm glad I don't ever have to do it again. I found pine needles in my socks, pockets, backpack and even my underwear. What's more, the trees have closed in around the summit too, so there is little in the way of a view to reward you.
I think I have to coin a phrase from Jackill "ask yourself why first". Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/484/comment/6756/
