Knockcraugh Hill has left its mark on me, or rather several!
Approach this hill from the main road beyond Nad turning off at W43042 86051 C.
You will be on a paved road for a kilometer and after that a gravel covered forest track.You can follow this track down the other side of the hill to W40198 82769 D but the surface is truly terrible.
I started at a forest entrance W40556 85813 E and followed a good forest road to W402270 F 86067, went left up a ride to W39898 86028 G and left again up a ride to the summit. These rides are awful , full of soft ground, bog , briars and thigh high grasses that seem to tangle your feet with every step. The summit (if you can find it for sure) seems to be in a dense clump of conifers.
Looking at the map now perhaps there is an easier ascent along the track to the west?
The photo shows I hope the density of vegetation at the summit .
On the plus side it only takes an hour to bag , but its been a long time since I've been so wet, dirty and sore. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/676/comment/4225/
