Carron - access
by hivisibility  1 Jan 2013
For those who might like to experience an easier access to Corrin (especially as it’s brutally wet on the Ballyhoura Way between Seefin and Corrin at the minute!) one can access the loop walks in Ballinaboola wood, which is located on the road linking Ballyhea and Ardpatrick. (R575186 D). If coming from Cork turn right at Ballyhea church and continue on for approx 2.2 miles, watch out for the wood on the right,signposted Ballyhoura Way. From Ardpatrick it’s a longer spin, pass straight through 3 crossroads and the trail will be shortly after the third crossroads on your left.
There are 2 car parks available, with plenty room for cars. On the roadside, or if you prefer, you can drive up the trail to an upper park which is bigger approx 5 minutes up. Personally I prefer to park at roadside.
Once parked continue straight up the trail until you meet the Ballyhoura Way coming from your right. (R583181 E). From here all you have to do is to follow the yellow Ballyhoura Way markers which lead all the way up, until you reach the col between Corrin and little Corrin at R607178 F. The Ballyhoura Way now switches left but Corrin summit is less than 3 minutes on your right.
The route is mostly forest track but good walking boots would be handy for the final segment as it’s a bit wet there at the moment. T o return simply retrace your steps. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/653/comment/14896/
