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/
