Picture: A wintry scene close to summit.
From Kinnitty village take the road South towards Roscrea. Take the first turn left signposted 'Slieve Bloom Mountains'. Drive 1.1 miles up this road until you reach a white house on your left. Park here and then walk up the track and cross the gate into the forest. The forest road leads directly to the summit. Close to the summit a fence has been erected across the road with 'No Trespassing' signs. Car to car takes about 45 minutes. Most of the walk is in coniferous forest with limited views.
As of Jan 2022, the 'Authorised Personnel Only' sign has been moved to the gate next to the road, but the gate was otherwise unlocked. One might make the assumption that this is to prevent things like illegal dumping or scramblers. There is no signage on the fence near the summit.

Member Comments for Knocknaman

Easy climb really....
by Fergalh 1 Feb 2014
Head south from Kinnity village and take first turn right, eventually you will come to a white house on its own with a track behind (A (N19627 02722)). Park here and climb gate and follow forest track after 200 metres follow forest ride on the right hand side all the way up until tou come to crossroad . Than turn left and proceed to the summit. The summit will have a lot of old decidious trees on the left hand side of the track Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/1106/comment/15811/

Picture: Summit track and trees.
Helpful route ignored.
by paddyhillsbagger 15 Feb 2014
I should have read Fergalh's route before choosing a cross country bash through tall gorse, boggy paths and conifer plantations only to find a track bisecting the summit of this hill! Followed the path down and was simplicity itself. Could have saved myself a tough trek up an easy bag! Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/1106/comment/15857/

Picture: Snowed under
The upside of winter
by Colin Murphy 6 Jan 2022
I approached from the previously mentioned A (N19627 02722), passing through an unlocked gate (and making the assumption that the 'Authorised Personnel Only' sign was to deter anyone with evil intent!) and followed the forest road all the way to a clearing at B (N198 035). Just east of this is another smaller clearing, from which a grassy forest ride meanders its way east towards the top, eventually leading to a wire fence on the left (which had clearly been crossed multiple times). This led to a track of sorts that rounded the summit area, vegetation preventing access, but eventually opened up to on the left, allowing access to a small area covered by what I think are European Beech trees. The high point was just to the right of this area. Although an otherwise dull hill, it was transformed into a magical setting thanks to overnight snow and frost.
