Bluebells and birdsong

A very easy "climb" along trails and steps from Lough Hyne car park close to Baltimore. Lovely mixed forestry and lots of bluebells, violets, celandine in full bloom. Great view of Lough Hyne and surrounds from the top but also from view points on the way up which makes it an interesting ascent. Ideal for a family outing.
