A new public walkway is nearing completion on Carrigfadda. The initial climb is a bit on the steep side, but steps are being put in place to make the walkway more accessible to young and old. It's only a short walk, but the panoramic view of the West Cork coastline -- from the Old Head of Kinsale right around to the Mizen and Beara peninsulas -- is nothing short of spectacular.

One for all the family to enjoy!

Loop walk to the top of the hill
by acorn  7 May 2013
Carrigfadda Loop Walk on www.irishtrails.ie is perfect for visiting this little top.
Travelling from Skibbereen to Clonakilty on the N71 turn left at a sharp bend just before the bridge in Connonagh. Follow this road to Carrigfadda Church GR W24508 42848 B where there is ample parking and a mapboard. The route of the loop walk takes you briefly back the road you came before turning right onto a minor road which leads to a forestry entrance at the base of the hill. A steep ascent brings you to the cross from where you can see the trig point further along the ridge. After the trig point the track enters the forestry. Shortly after entering the forest you take a left. The loop walk marker seems to be missing at this point so keep an eye out for a white corrugated card marker tacked to a tree indicating the way. The entire loop takes no more than an hour. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/943/comment/14988/

Two options for parking here, at the base of the hill at W 24508 42835 or at Carrigfadda Church at W24508 42848 which adds an extra 2km along the road.
If you choose to start at the hill, I suggest you climb up the forest road beyond the car park to give your legs a chance to warm up, keep right on the road and you'll end up halfway up the steps: which are steep and can be slippery if wet.
You'll easily be up and down in an hour with plenty of time at the top for the views (fog today), the trig point for the summit is beyond the cross (assuming you stay right after climbing the steps). Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/943/comment/6678/
