Mountain in name only.
Short Summary created by Harry Goodman  31 Mar 2015
From Ballygawley roundabout take the B34 east to a cross roads H675605 A. Turn left on to Agnagar Road, signed for Cappagh. Less than 1km along at a T junction (Harper's Bridge) go right and about 4km along at a cross roads H690649 B turn left on to Reclain Road. Go up the gentle rise to it's crest and once across, a short way down, at another cross roads H672663 C turn right and then right again on to a very narrow and poorly maintained road. About 300 metres along, on the right side a trig pillar, marks the high point of the hill, only a few metres in from the road. There is room just before this point where the road swings around left to park and not block access to other road users. This road leads down to Cappagh village some 2km further along and while access to the top can be reached from that direction the disadvantage is the 2km drive up from that end rather than 300m. Furthermore unless the approach to Cappagh village is from the north the overall route traveled would be further than that described above. While Cappagh Mt. covers a wide but not high moorland rise the feeling of wilderness is quashed by a number of large modern houses visible from the high point. While there are views over much of the South Tyrone landscape and beyond these are pleasant rather than striking to the eye. And remember visiting this top does not involve a walk of any kind. It is a mountain in name only. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1159/comment/15403/

A very easy one to tick off
by dr_banuska  25 Jan 2014
With the new hills that came onboard in January 2014, Cappagh Mountain became my most local, local.

It can be accessed by a very narrow 'road' from nearby Cappagh village, and indeed is only a matter of metres off the road. I chose to park a short distance to the NW of the summit, approx. 676667 D, just NE of the junction of this road and a slightly wider road. From here a very short walk along the more narrow road, past 2 bends, will bring you in sight of the trig on your right. Cross the fence at a convenient spot and you'll be at the trig in seconds.

I could see Pomeroy village to the N and hazy views of the Sperrins to the NW. I know from an earlier visit to these parts that Lough Neagh and Dungannon town may be seen to the E on a clearer day. Probably just one to tick off if it's in your locals or if you happen to be nearby. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1159/comment/15802/
