Excellent short walk to the top.
by Harry Goodman  30 May 2014
Aware of sandmans comments to be aware of access problems on this hill we decided on Mon 26 May 2014 to seek out a track shown on the OSNI Sheet 29 on the eastern side of the hill at J0663318395 B. What we found was that the track entrance was overgrown and appeared to lead up to the back of an adjoining house. In addition there was nowhere to park off road. In view of this I asked at the house if the track did in fact lead up to the hill and if so could we use it for access. Confirmation of a track up from the back of the house and permission to use it was readily given. In addition the house owner also gave us permission to park off road on her property. Although shown on the map as only going part of the way up the hill it does in fact twist and turn all the way to the top. The high point is on a rocky, peat and heather covered little knoll and the flag pole mentioned by Trailtrekker is still in place but without a flag. There is a comprehensive view out across to Slieve Gullion and Camough Mountain (NW) and E to the Cooleys. An enjoyable short walk of 2.5km on an excellent track.
