You can access the summit via Pepe's excellent directions but you can park at the entrance to the masts or as an alternative park at G9727972767 starB on the main road beside double farm gates allowing access close to summit via a tractor track.Excellent views from the summit but I could not locate the trig marker having spent some time searching the summit area and, in conversation with a local farmer, he could not remember one, maybe someone older would .Maybe it is a trig marker as on Slieve Anierin now covered or one like on Annatoran but now missing.
