Knockacummer can be aproached easily from the North. From the R576, turn off at approx R246 152 B and drive South for about 600 metres on a tarmac road until it ends in a small junction. There is limited parking available here. Take the left hand fork and follow the obvious forest track. About 100 metres West of the the sharp bend at R256 139 C, you can take a short cut by going left and South for about 400 metres through the forest. Once you break back out onto the forest track, go right and look for the turn off left into the open area by the summit. The fact that there is a Trig point there and the contour lines drop off nicely on the OS map might suggest that there might be some views from here. Alas, like it's neighbour Mullaghareirk to the North, the tall trees more or less block all of the views except for the windfarm on Taurbeg to the South West. The summit is marked by a trig point which has seen better days as it has now titled over at an angle as the soft ground underneath it has begun to subside. Overall, another one of those 400 metre hills that is more or less covered in forestry. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/788/comment/3229/
