A rewarding climb.
Short Summary created by Harry Goodman,  15 Oct 2013
Park at H0075579144 A and walk ENE along the road, by now a stone and gravel forest track. Follow it along for 2.8 km passing on the way a wind farm on Meenadreen. At H0316279517 B, where the track crosses the front of a large cleared area, leave it and go SE up over rough but manageable ground of peat and some forest debris to a clear gap in the treeline ahead H0338279410 C. The top of the hill lies some 500m further along, up a steep and hummocky grass covered slope. It is marked by a cairn H0376879310 D and further enhanced by a nearby hilltop tarn, Croaghnanmeal Lough.Out and back is a walk of some 7km the bulk of which (5.6km) is along a good forest track. An approach can also be made from the south where a minor road crosses the S flank of the hill around the 300m contour at approximately H042785 E. From here it is a short climb NNW of approximately 1km to the top over trackless ground. Views extend across NW to nearby Croaghmeen and the greater Bluestack tops beyond, SW across Donegal Bay to the tops of SW Donegal and the Dartrys and SE across Lough Derg to Fermanagh and the high ground of Brefine. A walk over this hill can be combined with one to Croaghmeen by descending N over the lower top to the col between the two hills at H0387080200 F and following the short summary route for Croaghmeen from that point, a round of just over 10km.
