Short Summary created by jackill,  23 Jan 2011
The most travelled routes to this summit are from the direction of the Sugarloaf.
Starting at the Vee, where there is lots of room to park safely by the roadside, and heading up the rough, often boggy track past the Grubb monument (large stone cairn by the roadside), join the stone wall just after the Sugarloaf summit cairn and follow the wall towards Knockmealdown ,leave the wall and cross the mountainside at 730m elevation just before the final pull to Knockmealdowns summit to reach the rocky pile of stones that marks Knockmoylan.
You can also park in Bay lough carpark S031 101 A, cross the main road and follow the steep rocky track, keeping the stone wall to your left to the top of the Sugarloaf, turn east then to follow the wall as before.
You can make the ascent somewhat easier by parking at the Vee, walk to the sharp apex of the Vee itself and follow the Munster way( signposted as St Declans way here) down into Glenmoylan. Do not cross the stream instead follow the path to the right going up the glen almost as far as where the non-existant Lough Moylan is shown on the OS maps , look for a rocky zig-zag path going up to the col between the Sugarloaf and Knockmealdown and follow it up. Cross the col to find the wall as mentioned and follow it again as before. A longer walk can be had by starting at S112 083 B (Point B) on the road between Mellary and Newcastle.
