Easy loop.
by oldsoldier  18 Oct 2011
Knockalough has recently been developed as a loop walk. To access this walk, from Thurles, travel out the Nenagh road past the hurling stadium. One mile out, past the race course on your rught, turn left onto the R 503. This road is signposted for Upperchurch and leads into the village of Ballycahill. 15 Km out there is a crossroads leading to the village of Upperchurch to the right. Turn left here and travel 1Km to the forest opening at R98851 59695. From here you can follow the loop or just follow the forest track to the summit. OR at least within 5/10 metres of the summit as the forest has been resown and I could not find the trig station. An enjoyable 2 hours on a fine morning. excellent beginners route. [See the Short Summary for the way to the trig pillar] Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/706/comment/4120/
