Caught the the Mourne Rambler Bus from Newcastle to Attical, then followed the Tullyframe Road till the junction with the Ballymageough Road. Turned left and followed the Ballymageough to 278182 A, turned right here and follow a lane (passed an old farm house) through a gate into Mourne Wood. Continue straight ahead through a track junction, turning left at 275181 C, at the end of the forestry track go through a gate at 273172 B and follow a path up through the grass to the summit of Knockchree.

The view of the Mournes arcing round Knockchree is superb, more surprising is why there has been no photo of this view in any of the outdoor magazines. Return is by way of the ascent, though you can follow the forestry tracks down to the Newry road & Kilkeel, either via the Golf club or Huey's Bridge to the Ballymageough Road Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/952/comment/4031/
