Park at the saddle W23626 87990 and hop the fence onto a hill field. I crossed about a kilometer of glacial deposits, following the fence line to the right ,covered in grasses and sometimes rushes with all manner of rocks strewn about. As I crossed over the final wire fence the terrain turned to rough mountain covered by brown heather. There is an Iron cross near the summit which was erected in 2000 and expansive views of Cork and Kerry , mountains and plains, bog and grassland run away from you on all sides.
