Flattish summit, good tracks and telecom masts.
Short Summary created by simon3, jackill,  16 Jun 2013
An option from the east is to park at R66277 16805 A , However there is barely room to park one car here at the roadside. A better option might be to park at R66494 16799 B and walk to the start.
Follow the track up to Long mountain and Seefin and then down to join the Ballyhoura way.
Follow the generally good track over the bog to Little Carron.
From the west park at R58178 18377 C which is forest car park reached over a rough forest road from the public road. There is parking for at least 10 cars here. The OS 1:50k accurately shows tracks which you can follow to reach Carron and Little Carron.
There is quite a large mast and buildings near the summit which has extensive bike damage. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/662/comment/5421/

The walk to Little Carron began for me at R66277 16805
The is barely room to park one car here at the roadside. A better option might be to park at R66494 16799 and walk to the start.
I followed the track up to Long mountain and Seefin and the down to join the Ballyhoura way.
I then followed the generally good track over the bog to Little Carron.
There is quite a large mast and buildings near the summit and these certainly take from the little view that there is. The area is also very damaged by bikers. I met 2 different groups of bikers near the summit. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/662/comment/2802/

Starting at the Greenwood car park (R657 184 D) I looped around the Blackrock to the west of Seefin where I met the Ballyhoura way. I followed this across the heather to Little Carron and then headed onto Carron Mountain. On the way to Little Carron you pass a large radio/telecommunications mast. The area around this was badly cut up by offroad activities. The weather was brilliant which made the walk all that better. As the weather was so good when standing on the top of Carron Mountain I could see all the way west to the MacGuillycuddy's Reeks. The return route took me back to the just after the radio mast and then I took to the forestry tracks on the way back to Seefin, passing the fitness trail, and then headed for Long mountain and down to the car park.
