Great views and a great name for your first summit after surgery

A quick bag

Park at Q 61908 01873 B (1 car just).
Walk to the junction enter little lane just before house.
It's a quick up and down over rough ground. Nice views though. This is farmland but no one was about to ask permission. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1142/comment/19557/

Picture: Trail over this hill as shown on map-board in Annascaul
Easily Accessible and not overly demanding
by Bunsen7  17 Aug 2018
There is a waymarked trail to the summit which loops over the ridge leading west from this hill. See track 3881.
The quickest route to the top would see you park in Annascaul village and walk up the Maum butter road eastwards (incidentally this is also part of the Dingle Way), before crossing a stile southwards at Q61478 02068 A.

Having reached the top, you can follow the trail westwards along the ridgetop, whereupon two further rises occur Brackloon (270m) and Meelin Hill (212m). Follow the walker posts down to the road at Q59652 00497 C.

Head north along the R561. The second right turn leads you onto a quiet laneway which deposits you at the Tom Crean "park" across from the South Pole Inn. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1142/comment/20022/

From the horse's mouth

This is the trail description post at Q59652 00497 C. It summarises the route if taken from west to east, as per track 3881.
Vastly superior to my own garbled efforts!

Annascaul obviously is a very welcoming place for hillwalkers with a strong local group. A very tidy town as well and many other places could learn a thing or two from what has been achieved here.
