A lovely hidden gem.

There is room for a number of cars to park near the lake as mentioned by Geo with an obvious trail that can be followed directly to the summit of the hill through the Knockomagh Wood nature reserve.. Great views out over Lough Hyne, a sea-water lake and Ireland's first marine nature reserve. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1039/comment/20157/
