Anyone who's motored northwards from Donegal town to Ballybofey will have passed Cruach Eoghanach, known locally (if erroneously) as Barnesmore Hill. It's modest height belies a certain statuesqueness, particularly viewed from afar.
If approaching from Donegal town, drive through the Barnesmore Gap and keep an eye out for an unmarked gravel track on the RHS of the road (if you reach a side road signposted Castlederg, you've gone too far). Drive up this track for 0.2 miles and park beside a working quarry. The track to the summit starts at the gate to your right.
The ascent is gradual to start, but steepens about half-way up (keep an eye out for a Coillte sign with a blue arrow, pointing the way).
As you gain height, a vast desolate tract of forested country stretching to the Tyrone border comes into view. After nearly 5 Km (about a brisk hour) you reach the summit, with the usual junkyard paraphenalia of telecommunications equipment. Views include a wind farm not far to the south, and northwards, low lying moorland with only Lough Mourne breaking the bleakness. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/618/comment/3604/
