Rough track at end to top
by Fergalh  13 Feb 2014
Take first right out of Timahoe proceed to crossroads. At crossroads turn right until you see sign for return to Timahoe ((S 56000 87201 A). Park here and follow track up to forest crossroads. Go straight ahead and cross rusty gate and proceed to fence. Here turn right along rough track to top. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1113/comment/15850/

Walk or Drive.
by sandman  9 Jun 2014
On turning in on the road which runs thru the townland of Orchard Upper i was greeted with a very mucky road at the rear of the first farmyard but fortunately this was short and the road afterwards was a tarred surface up to the forest entrance S5632989179 B. As this gate is normally opened good parking exists but now you can choose to Drive ,Walk, or Bike as a well maintained forest road exists to within meters of the summit.
