simon3: Track 1959 in area near Ballincurra Hill, Shannon (Ireland)
Exploration of routes on Ballincurra.

Descent: 213m

Places: Start at R92546 69217, end at Start

Starting from the forest entrance to the south this track shows two routes for getting to the top. The first takes a long looping route to the NW. This turned out to be a fairly magnificent balcony walk with great views of Cooneen Hill and the countryside. However the track ends some 268m short of the summit and there is a feasible but nasty ascent over rushes and rough ground completely devoid of any track.

Wanting to circumvent this on the way down I went SW along a ride that meets the top. This was also rough in parts though in other places it was possible to walk through the adjoining mature forest (as of 2012).

On inspecting the airphoto I suspect that are better routes from the forest entrance than either of the possibilities explored here.

Note: ALL information such as Ascent, Length and Creator time taken etc should be regarded as approximate. The creator's comments are opinions and may not be accurate or still correct.
Your time to complete will depend on your speed plus break time and your mode of transport. For walkers: Naismith's rule, a rough and often inaccurate estimate, suggests a time of 1h 28m + time stopped for breaks
Note: It is up to you to ensure that your route is appropriate for you and your party to follow bearing in mind all factors such as safety, weather conditions, experience and access permission.
