The views from Ballykildea include the Slieve Bernagh ridge and the continuation of the whole horseshoe to Glennagalliagh. The east end of the ridge, with Moylussa, is shown on the skyline in the picture.

One way of getting to the summit is to start from the Ballycuggaran wood R688760 A. Work your way around the tracks. Some of these are shown, sort of, on the 1:50k map. There is also a map displayed at the entrance to the park. Google Earth has as of 2009 useful photos of the tracks. You need to get to R65837434 B (whitish widened area on the road in the picture) from where there is a ride south from the road to the heathery uncairned summit dome. If you are also ascending Moylussa, the ride north will take you in the right direction. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/774/comment/4220/

Parking adjacent to double farm gates at R6545673163 C will allow you a fast and easy route to the summit. Pass thru the gates and continue uphill crossing into another field adjacent to the forestry,keeping to the left hand upper corner will take you into the forestry and on to a well constructed forest road .Go right walk along roadway to turning area at R6582573447 D now turn left and follow animal trails up to the open mountain and summit area .
