Places:Start at S85535 51219, Black Rock Mountain, end at S85228 51269 311m W from Start Logged as completed by 1
Up and down to Black Rock Mountain beginning from Ballycrystal.
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.
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.

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 2h 7m + 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.
