An open summit makes a great viewpoint
Short Summary created by jackill  7 Sep 2014
Park at R68211 20181 A, a forest entrance with room for 2 cars. Walk uphill into the forestry on a good track taking the first right and continue to R68645 19999 B, this is the start of a machine track the skirts the forest on the east and the felled area on the east. Head uphill and south to the summit area which is covered by high grass and nettles.Excellent views of the Ballyhouras, the Galtys and the plains of Limerick to the north.
Note the summit position changed in September 2014 following a survey by Mountainviews. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1092/comment/15336/
