A pleasant 6 kms walk on good forest tracks
by ceadeile  6 Oct 2019
Plenty of parking at S67033 45777 starC.
The shortest way up is from S 6694 4570 starB where there is a steep vehicle track leading directly to the summit but as one nears the summit this track has become overgrown with gorse and briars. It is also quite steep and slippery in places One can overcome these difficulties if sufficiently determined or stubborn but a more pleasant walk is available over good forest tracks as follows.
Enter forest at S 67108 45895 starD. After around 60 metres , at S 67075 45937 starE, turn SW (left) and walk for 200m to where the track swings round NW. Keep following the track for 1725 metres to a junction at S 65483 46245 starF.
Turn SE (left) and follow track for 1150m to the summit.
The highest point seems to be between two electricity supply poles Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1086/comment/20662/
