wicklore: Track 2295 in area near Benard, Galty Mountains (Ireland)
Temple Hill and Benard
Length: 11.6km, Creator time taken: 3h56m, Ascent: 628m,
Descent: 657m

Places: Start at R81978 18577, Benard, Temple Hill, end at Start

This route takes in the two most western of the Galty range - Benard and Temple Hill. I found the route finding to Benard challenging as there is a lot of forestry covering the hill. Descending from Benard was also tough - more forestry and difficult underfoot conditions. Once back onto forest tracks below Benard the going becomes straightforward and a gate leads out onto hillside and the haul up to Temple Hill. The descent from Temple Hill is steep grassy slopes so be careful on wet days. A long walk on forest tracks brings you back to the start. Watch out for a metal tin with a visitor signing book hidden in the cairn on Temple Hill, which was there when I climbed it. Great views of the high Galtys from Temple Hill - which is a big mountain itself.
