Cornasaus is accessible from the Kingscourt – Bailieborough road in Cavan. I drove up the M1 and headed for Ardee before cutting across to Cavan. Cornasaus is part of a ridge of upland a few kilometres long. A minor road cuts across this upland just to the north of the highest point. A track at N724 965 leads from the road the few hundred metres up to the summit. Geo mentions a forest track in his post, but there is no forestry on Cornasaus on this side. There is forestry on its southern slopes however, and I saw a track lead from the summit into the trees. Cornasaus is clearly the highest point around and this area of upland is home to several communications masts. The track leading up to the summit is well worn – both by boots and wheeled vehicles. The summit itself has a half-overgrown cairn with a trig pillar built on it. The most interesting feature was the large tricolour flag atop a long pole sticking out of the trig pillar. While the summit is obviously well used the locals have respected the flag and no vandalism is evident. While I was there (late on Saturday evening) 8 Polish people wandered up the hill and we enjoyed a chat. The views are good – I could see Slieve Gullion and the Cooleys away to the NE. There are many smaller hills dotted across the land to the east and west. Further west were some unidentified higher hills, and views south were partly blocked by the forestry. Not a remarkable summit but I can see why locals come here for the views. Sorry Geo – not a bilberry in sight! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/913/comment/3756/
