Parked at the viewpoint/picnic area just after the eircom access road mentioned below. Straightforward stroll up to the summit along the access road to the trig pillar which as mentioned is massive! A number of masts and portacabins on the summit also. Started at wolftrap as part of an overall loop around the blooms....from wolftrap headed east through some very high heather which made the going tough i have to admit! in some places heather and gorse was thigh high so be prepared. Barren enough terrain with only the views north and south over the low lands of any interest. Contiuned onwards with the eventual goal the carpark and picnic area at the cut. This road seems to appear out of the heather and looks more like a gully from some distance....overall tough going through the high heathers which thankfully were dry under foot. Cant imagine it after wet conditions... From the cut we contiuned onwards toward Baunreaghcong and the ridge of capard...see relevant summits for remaining posts Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/494/comment/3849/
