Picture: Overgrown Track
 
Track nearly Impassible
by Fergalh  8 Jun 2021
Update : The track indicated by Sandman is now totally impassable by any motorised vehicle including tractors as it is overgrown with trees. In fact shortly it will be totally overgrown as in parts it was hard to find ! Eventually I found the gate as indicated and headed up to the summit with a wonderful view in the declining light.
