Follow this track(marked accurately on OSI 1:50000 map ) to the summit of Knocknaskagh.Follow a rough track on past this summit , the track gradually becomes a good forest road as you enter woodland. Turn off the main forestry road at W68227 94566 C up a narrow but passable track then right along an a ride through pine forest.The summit is marked by a large stone cairn.

Listen out!!

Just to advise anybody who might be interested in walking on the Nagles to bear in mind it is a range also much beloved of trailbikers. Some of the paths especially between Seefin and Knocknaskagh are narrow so one needs to keep your wits about and listen out for these lads either before or behind you.

After Knocknaskagh we approached Seefin by turning off the main forestry road at W68227 94566 C up a narrow but passable track through pine forest.
We arrived at a large summit cairn that from some angles resembles a wizards hat.
Because the forest surrounds this cairn the views are quite limited.
Coming down from the summit turn north at W67715 94363 D to get back on the main forestry track. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/721/comment/2812/

Good forest tracks to Wizards Hat
by eamonoc  27 Feb 2015
Having read other comments decided to try to ascend from the west after climbing Corran. Parked at forest entrance W 66980 94859 E room for one or maybe two cars parked carefully, Walked on good forestry track and after approx 150mts met a crossroads of forest tracks went straight through this junction and took next right turn, followed this track and ignoring next left went straight on a well defined grassy track to W 67387 94508 F at this point a good path uphil to the left leads the large stone cairn that adorns this top. Total distance car to car approx 3km, time taken 40mins. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/721/comment/17860/
