Short Summary created by jackill,  4 Feb 2011
Park at the forest entrance just above Fr Murphys Bridge outside Banteer W39408 96108 A, room for 6 cars. Walk up the forest track , turn right , then right , the right again on a good track all the way to the summit. Note the track starting at W41024 95949 B is now covered in brush from felled trees but can be reached if you turn off the road at approx. W41277 96000 C. The summit is marked by 4 masts and a trig pillar.The best views are to be had by continuing to W43080 95236 D and heading east through the forest on the south side of the ride , then across a field to the cross at W43593 94840 E.

A short but fun trip to the top
by thomas_g  9 Feb 2012
Park at W4225197135 F (room for 6 cars). Head straight up the hill, ignoring the walking trail markers. At the T junction at W4212896588 G, enter the woods behind the information board, there is a visible trail. Now climb up the stream bed, which is steep in spots and could be very wet after lots of rain. When you emerge on the forest track at the top, turn left and then next right, you are following the red marked trail in reverse now.
Still following the marked trail. after taking a right you'll come to a cross of forest tracks, the summit is straight on, but if you want to head for the cross, turn left here (sorry no grid ref) and at W4304095272 H enter the woods, you'll see from the picture below that the track that was once there is now impassible (I passed it twice even with a GPS ref). You'll need to parallel the track through the woods and soon the cross will come into view. It's a worthwhile detour, the views are pretty decent.
Having back tracked to the summit, I started a very windy descent along the marked track so I entered the woods again at W4228495688 I following a rough path down through the trees to another forest track at W4215995934 J, cross straight across and before long you'll be back at the top of the stream bed from earlier. I followed the blue marked trail back to the car, but the more adventurous could go back down the stream bed. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/852/comment/6677/

Climbed Mount hillary from the North from the coillte forest opening south of banteer. there is a map of the walks at the entrace.
There are actually two peaks btw. on the east its marked by a cross looking east towards mallow, on the west is the highest point looking west towards mushera and claragh mountain. the trig pillar here registers 1280 feet on my altitude watch but dont know how accurate that is.
have to say the views were great for such a small effort. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/852/comment/3469/
