Short Summary created by jackill,  22 Oct 2010
Park at the Castleblagh forestry entrance W 70804 94284 A , room for 5 cars.Walk up the track and turn left onto the gently rising rocky track at junction W70974 94853 B . 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.
Coming down from the summit heading west turn north at W67715 94363 D to get back on the main forestry track. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/721/comment/5480/
