Forest tracks most of the way
Short Summary created by wicklore,  2 Jan 2011
Benduff is at the northern end of the ridge of upland which is also home to Devilsbit and Kilduff. While Devilsbit at the southern end attracts lots of visitors, you are unlikely to see many people on Benduff, although horses roam the forest tracks freely. While the summit of Benduff is a nondescript heather hump sticking out above nearby forestry, it offers good views across to the Silvermines and Keeper Hill, and even the distant Wicklow mountains to the NE.

There is parking for a few cars at S06678 78457 A. From here find the nearby gate a little up the road at S06685 78423 B. Cross the gate and follow a muddy track until it joins the Coillte track at S06175 78366 C where you turn right. At the next big junction at S05912 78413 D turn right again. The track loops around while continuing to gain height. At the 3rd junction at S05457 78022 E turn right once more. This track leads up to near the summit area. You can choose to turn left at either S05310 78606 F or S05377 78693 G After a hundred metres on either track you reach a fence. After crossing the fence turn right and cross deep heather and wet ground to reach the summit at S05082 78792 H. A walk of 2.5kms with a climb of 165 metres, with all but the final few hundred metres on forest tracks. There has been a lot of deforestation, opening up views across the Devilsbit and further afield as you climb. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/603/comment/5362/
