Short Summary created by jackill,  16 Jun 2013
Start at the forest entrance S36451 10191 A where the is room to park 3-4 cars.
Follow the forest track uphill.
After coming to a gate next to a sheep fold at S37063 11231 B do not go through the gate but turn to your right and hop the broken gate/wire you see.
There is a rough track which skirts the foresty to your left follow this track to S37725 11270 C then continue on the track skirting around the summit to the right until you finally meet a grassy ramp(slight crossing of high heather to reach it) on the east of the mountain just after the track starts to descend, follow this to the summit.
To add variety to the walk descend the track to the east of the summit for about 250 meters, do no go any further.
At S38147 11140 D, 336m elevation, cross the fence to your left and follow the bottom edge of a rough clearing to reach a road at S38086 11276 E, 320m elevation .
Following this road will take you back to your start point Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/851/comment/5610/
