With a 4/4 or a car with any reasonable ground clearance will allow you to drive up to the masts L7883872946 A located at the end of the forestry road shown on the eastern side of the hill. No barriers exist and you are only asked to keep the one gate closed. By walking around the back of the upper mast will allow you access to open hillside via the side of the forest . On reaching the ridge you will encounter fantastic views across Doo Lough surrounded by the Mweel Reas the Gorms and the Sheeffrys. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1129/comment/18873/

Quick route up and down

In following Sandman's instructions I found a slightly quicker way of reaching the summit. At the switchback in the forest L7908771701 B there is a large layby. Park there and follow the track 100 metres through the trees till you get to a fence. Take a sharp right here to the summit. Up and down around 30 minutes.
