A quick summit slog
by moggy40  25 May 2011
Approached this from the Lake Shore on the Northern Side of the peak. The tracks showen on OS map 45 does not show the trails on this side correctly so would suggest using the map provided for the Derroura bike trail from Coillte.ie. Follow the tracks until you feel it appropriate to head on the mountain itself. From there the only way up crossing the bike trail on the way up. Going is tough with deep grass & heather. The top itself has a hugh cairn on the summit and the views heading west towards the Maamturks & Bens are great with the turks laid out in front of you. Well worth the effort in getting to the summit
An alternative approach could be from the N59 parking at the Derroura bike trail carpark. and following the bike trail. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/953/comment/6359/
