Track walk except mucky, mystical mossy end, with elusive trig pillar.
Short Summary created by simon3, jackill,  11 Nov 2012
From Inistioge, turn left at the road junction at S66946 41825 A ( sign post for Coppanagh). Take the next left (on a rough tarred road)passing a house on the right to a forest entrance , room for 2 cars.
From Graiguenamanagh take the R793 to Thomastown and turn left at the col of Coppanagh Gap. First right to start.
Follow the track uphill into the forest as far as S65255 43455 B and just beyond the apex of the bend follow a rough track southwest through a thinned area of forest out onto a track skirting the forest edge.I followed this track northwest to its highest point and then enter the forest again. The trig pillar is about 100 meters into the forest and 100 meters to the left .
There is plenty of space between the trees to reach it without impediment.
Although mucky the area has a spooky magical feel due to huge growth of moss on the ground and even on the branches of some of the trees. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/882/comment/5641/
 
New Comment: Wear Your Wellies
by Pepe  Sun 19 Mar
As of early 2017 the top section of forestry has been felled, making the trig easily visible once you're up. A word of caution: this felling has resulted in a treacherous summit surface; a gazillion branches lurk on the ground often hiding under grass, moss or loose sods, waiting to trap the unsuspecting walker. Felling has also resulted in heavy machinery activity and many deeply-gouged digger trails often full of watery snares. A boot of mine got sucked into the clinging mud behind me, as did one of Marie's. Luckily we were able to fish them both out with a hiking pole. Wellies advised rather than boots if you plan on climbing Coppanagh. Overall, not a hill to put top of anyone's wish-list. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/882/comment/18860/

If you go down to the woods today!
by eamonoc  5 Apr 2014
Climbed Friday 4/4/2014 in the Company of Binnion Champion Fergalh. started at S66105 43113 C. Followed good forest track uphill until progress was halted by many fallen trees, headed into forest on right for about 100mts to avoid these. Then went left uphill until a forest track higher up was encountered. Crossed this and headed into forest again crossed an old stone wall into a large area of moss covered trees, it took about 5 mins of searching to find the trig, but like an apparition it suddenly appeared in all its glory. Note there were a huge amount of fallen trees in the lower part of the woods. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/882/comment/15965/
