A "busy" hilltop.
Short Summary created by jackill, Harry Goodman  18 Mar 2012 Park at Muckish Gap B998 269 (Point A). Climb up the steep enbankment NW and then follow up along the forest edge (on left) for some 600m to Pt 384 B995 264 (Point B) Continue further along for another 500m to Pt. 431 B992 261 (Point C) where a change of direction to due W (right) is necessary to gain the high point about 2k from the start. The top of this hill is quite expansive and "busy" with many humps and hallows all above the 400m contour. For this reason finding the top in poor visibility could prove tricky unless care is taken with navigation, hence the number of checkpoints given. There are three small loughs on Crocknalaragagh, all above 400m, which are all within close proximity of each other should a visit to them be required. While there are views N to Muckish, SW to the Agla Begs and across SE to the Dooish / Slieve Snaght ridge, the relatively low height of Crocknalaragh means they are more restricted than those from its higher neighbours. Most people probably climb this hill as part of a greater round of tops.
Point A: B998 269 Point B: B995 264 Point C: B992 261
