Isolated hill offers fine views
Short Summary created by wicklore,  3 Jan 2011
There is room for a couple of cars at J278182 A. From here follow a track past a farm into the forest. You can then follow the forest track to a gate at J273172 B and take a grassy track up to the summit. Alternatively when you reach the forest track after the farm turn right and soon scramble up the slope on the left to pick your way across rough ground for a kilometer to the grassy summit. The summit is marked by a small metal pole sticking haphazardly out of the ground. Although only 308 metres high, it’s isolation means that Knockchree offers fine views all around. In particular there are great views south across Carlingford Lough to Slieve Foye, and north to Slieve Binnian, Eagle Mountain and Shanlieve.
