A Delightful Walk, Muddy near Summit.
by TommyMc  3 Mar 2018
I enjoyed a delightful walk to the summit on a nippy but very sunny Sunday 25 February. Sadly the narrow track on the final approach to the summit has been cut up badly over the winter, and quite clearly worsened by someone rather inconsiderately riding a horse up and down. In its current state, it will leave you with very muddy footwear and may be a hazard for an elderly person or a young child.

Otherwise the walk through the beech forest from the car park is an utter joy. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1050/comment/19864/
