Summit cairn and view

Largely uses forest tracks, once out of the forest however, there is a very maintained looking track which continues all the way to the col between Black Rock and Mount Leinster East Top.  Judging by the tracks, this is used regularly by horse riders.
Road to the col

As Paddyhillsbagger has pointed out on the hill's page, there is a substantial rectangular building on the col.  This flat roofed structure has no immediately apparent use; it contains a fireplace and an inner corrugated ceiling which is still in place, though sagging somewhat.
