Knocknaskagh was the first stop on a long Sunday walk across the Nagles.
Starting at the Castleblagh forestry entrance W 70804 94284 we walked up the track and turned left onto the gently rising rocky track at junction W70974 94853 and followed this track(marked on map ) to the summit. Castleblagh wood is a bit special. It contains around 75 hectares of woodland which makes up the Ballyhooly intensive forest ecosystem monitoring plot . It was established in late 1988 as the first whole-ecosystem cycling study in Ireland. The forest consists of pure Norway spruce of German (Black Forest) origin, planted in 1939. In late 1995, an area of forest at Ballyhooly was clearfelled, cultivated and replanted with Douglas fir and oak . Monitoring of the site on the impacts of clearfelling and replanting on nutrient cycling, water quality and the sustainability of the forest as a resource is ongoing.
The photo was taken in from to the summit cairn with the nearby peak of Knocknaskagh North Top and in the distance the Ballyhouras , the Galtys and the Knockmealdowns. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/702/comment/2811/
