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/
