Combined a jaunt up Corn Hill with a trip to Mullaghmeen yesterday to take in 2 county high-points in one day. Took the children along and Corn Hill provides a short but pleasant walk with the summit accessible via a small service road that lies beyond a locked gate. The hill suffers visually in a number of ways, totally dominated by the huge RTE mast and it's service buildings along with the myriad of stay wires which stretch out in all directions on the summit. Views are limited by the forestry plantation at the top sections of the hill - one man I met informed me that he saw the trees as an affront to the hill and that prior to their planting, you could see nine counties from the trig pillar. The trig pillar is located down a path to the right of the mast and sits atop a grass-covered cairn. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/974/comment/3417/
