Picture: Looking to-wards Fir Mt from the NW.
Take the B162 NW out of Cookstown and at A (H78405 83322) take a road on the left (Ballynagilly Road). Follow it along for some 4 km to pass a tree plantation on the right, part of Davagh Forest. Just beyond the Plantation park, with care, at the roadside beyond a metal gate B (H74477 84666). Cross the gate and make directly for the top, keeping to the left of an obvious knoll on the slope ahead. Cross a wooden gate into the next field to gain the high point of the hill just beyond a high barbed wire fence at C (H74718 85393).
There are nice views down over L Fea and Slieve Gallion, E to L Neagh, NNW to the higher Sperrins and S to the distant line of Cuilcagh. Up and back 1.7km, easily walked in less than 30 minutes.

Maps can deceive!
by Harry Goodman 25 Aug 2015
I climbed Fir Mt. in June 2015 when completing my "new" Local 100 hills. I parked beside a gate into a field leading up to the hill B (H74477 84666). Once across, it was a gentle stroll up to the top. Initially I passed around the left side of an obvious knoll, crossed a wooden gate into another field and then a high barbed wire fence to gain the top and therein lies my tale. Strangely both the OSNI Sheet 13 for the Sperrins and the more detailed Sperrin Activity 1:25,000 scale maps show the spot height 262m as lying within the 250m contour at D (H747 853) yet there are two small 260m ring contours also shown nearby on these maps. When there I took a GPS reading of my considered high point C (H74718 85393). When I got home I looked at an earlier edition (1991) of OSNI Sheet 13 and found in that map that the spot height 262m was located within the more southerly of the two 260m ring contours. My roamer reading from this older map was E (H747 854) which corresponded very closely to my GPS reading on the hill. This said when there it is fairly obvious to the eye where the high point lies.
