Knockmoylan is reached by staying on the ridge from Knockmealdown and heading first in a north west direction and then turning north and is 1.25 km distance. This view in the photo is taken from the summit of Knockmealdown with the flat plains to the north in the background. See Sugarloaf to continue the traverse.
