The first time I attempted to do this walk was in February 2009 and I was beaten by the snow. There was about 6 inches on the roads which made it pretty difficult in my little Toyota Yaris! Somehow I made it to the end of the forestry road but while attempting to pull in and park I slid past the entrance and down the hill about 10-15m! I decided not to push my luck and gave up that time. Today I didn't have the snow to contend with (just the many, many potholes) and if I'd been so inclined I could have even driven to the top as the gate was open

A leisurely stroll of less than 10mins each way to the breezy trig point sounds boring but the views in all directions are excellent. The weather was glorious with bright sunshine and a bit of a breeze. It's almost impossible to try and count all the hills you can see from here and I'll swear I could see as far as Binevenagh on the way back down.

An enjoyable and interesting walk and despite its brevity a nice way to clear the cobwebs after a lazy Sunday morning and afternoon :) Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/987/comment/4661/
