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/
