Walk Access no Problem.
by sandman  9 Jun 2014
No problems exist with access to this hill as you are spoilt for choice either via Binninea Loop walk (Loop 107) or Gathabawn Loop (National Trails) or in my case via the access road to the mast located at S3871972172 B which is entry to a farm tract used by numerous land oweners and leads to the forest barrier. As a matter of parking i drove up to the semi direlect farmyard which can be seen from the road. Keeping to the right at the yard follow the tract into the forest and as the summit (S3791970983 C) located well behind the mast continue to road end turning left beside felled area thus giving you easy access .
