Short Summary created by Harry Goodman,  24 Oct 2011
Park off the B27, on NE side where the Mourne Way crosses the road J260 280 A. There is room for one car to pull off the road. Alternatively if more parking space is required use the Spelga Dam car park J267 273 B and walk down the road SW for 1k to the start point J260280. Cross the road and go down the short rough track to cross a sturdy metal bridge over the infant River Bann. Once across go directly S up the slope for about 750m over heather and some rocky out crops to the top, marked by a cairn of stones, from where there is a splendid view down to Spelga Dam. For a little variety to the outward route descend NE to pick up a fence around J263 273 C. Turn left (N) and follow the fence down to the river bank. Turn left and contour along back to the bridge and the start point. This is a hill that would seldom be climbed in its own right. Most walkers would use it as an access route to Cock Mt about 700m to the SW. Indeed a short but rewarding circuit is to start as above, climb Slievenamiskin, then go SW to Cock Mt before going down NW to Hen Mt, From Hen Mt drop down NE to pick up the Mourne Way at around J250 280 D. Turn right and follow the way markers back to the bridge and start point. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/641/comment/5400/
