Typical of the Area.
by sandman  2 May 2017
This hill is typical of the underfoot conditions of other hills in the area unless they have marked trails that is rock , whitish grass and boggy in many places. The fastest ascent is straight up off the R591 at the farm gate located at V8879436873 A but you can have a more relaxed approach via the gravel track at V8827134660 B. At the very end of this track is a turning area and from there you will see a gate leading to the hillside, although you will cross two fences you will be rewarded with a nice ridge walk.

Mind how you go

I wouldn’t recommend driving up the track described by sandman. I did and got halfway where it became too overgrown to proceed. They only turning opportunity is a gate that requires some serious effort to get turned around. Park by the roadside and walk down. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1195/comment/19973/
