Remotest Cork with a great view to Glengarriff
Short Summary created by jackill,  3 Aug 2012
Park at the forest entrance W142 717 A, room for 6/7 cars. Go SE on the public road for about 30 metres and walk through a gate straight into a boggy field. Head towards the left corner and carry on straight up the hill passing a rain meter.. You'll have to negotiate a few fences but there are obvious low points to get over if you look. The summit is on a rocky outcrop surrounded by grass. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/728/comment/5487/

This small hill to the East of Mweelin is very easy to reach. There is plenty of space for parking on the main public road at W142 717. Don't go over the gate as you'll just have to cross a barbed wire fence again. Just walk SE on the public road for about 30 metres and walk straight into a boggy field. Head towards the corner and carry on straight up the hill. You'll have to negotiate a few fences but there are obvious low points to get over if you look. There are a number of potential summits but one is obvious at W14917 71786 B. Nothing special, just a grassy outcrop..............There are some excellent views from the Paps, Mangerton and Crohane in Kerry to Nowen, Sheehy More and others in West Cork. Mweelin to the West does however obscure the views a bit in that direction. While the views are nice, much the same and a bit more can be seen from Mweelin accross the way. Overall, it's an easy walk but given a choice, I'd do Mweelin. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/728/comment/3156/

Great reward, little effort

Its an easy walk up if you follow John Desmonds instructions otherwise prepare to get your feet wet and your trousers torn. Great views over all 360 degrees, the Kerry mountains, Shehys, the Lee valley.This would be a good start to the day if, for example, you wished to walk the ridge to Gougane Barra.

Quick and easy ascent on an otherwise un-inviting day for hill walking
by three5four0  15 Aug 2010
Parked in the space mentioned by john desmond, for Carrigalougha and Mweelin, on a blustery and showery day.

Waked a short distance down the road and went through the gate at W143 716 C and followed an old track up hill. The track passes through a reedy area, where a keen eye will be needed to stay on it. At around W14858 71593 D, you reach a fence (on an old boundary), which is marked on the map. Turn left and follow this up hill to the summit area. The map shows the old wall / boundary clipping the summit height spot. In reality, there is higher ground either side, as pointed out by John desmond, which leads to some fence hoping to ascertain the highest point.
