Short Summary created by aidand,  1 Jul 2013
There is a large RTE transmitter on the top of Maghera with a tarred road up to the summit. There is room to park several cars at the, usually locked, gates at R529 897 A. Allow just over an hour for the walk to and from the top. This is a pleasant enough walk through coniferous forest. During my visit there were large numbers of orchids in bloom on the roadside near the summit. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/838/comment/5597/
