Pleasant Walk, Spoiled A Little By Heavy Rain
by Aidy  26 Mar 2014
It was a beautiful day in Belfast where I had travelled for work, and as I didn't have boots or any other gear I thought I would have a look a this small hill, having recently seen it on one of gerrym's excellent videos. I started from Knockenagh Avenue and simply followed the blue waymarked trail through the pleasant woodland, until I emerged on to open fields. There is a good guide to the walk on Walkni.com, with downloadable maps and leaflets, but it does give the impression that the hilltop walk will take you over the summit, which is not the case. When you leave the trees on higher ground, you need to leave the trail, and cross the fields to the now clearly visible summit. Its a nice walk through the woods, and the views are good, although those from nearby Cave Hill are probably better if you only have time for one or the other. Unfortunately for me, as I got near the top, clouds drew in and it began to rain heavily, so I couldn't even take the camera out until I reached the foot of the hill again.

No electric fences please
by eamonoc  30 Oct 2017
Went to Knockenagh Avenue to climb Carnmoney Hill, followed blue route uphill to open fields as mentioned by Aidy, was approx 400m from top which was clearly in view but many newly constructed barbed wire fences plus fairly substantial electric fences barred the way, went back dowwnhill drove around to Carmoney village an on towards Ballyduff Industrial estate. Drove up a very narrow road towards a private house at J 33374 83752 A. Parking for one car here and used Mast access road to get close to top, a small gap in a fence had to be climbed and a walk across a small boggy dip to gain the top where there is a Trig point. Good views towards Cave Hill and out over Belfast Lough from top. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1246/comment/19775/

Good way to spend an evening in Belfast
by Trigpoint100  30 Aug 2018
Like Aidy I was in Belfast for work and ill equipped for any serious jaunt. However, I did find a simple route to the top of Carnmoney, which offers panoramic views of Belfast and surrounds. As eamonoc, start from the Ballyduff side. The lane from A eomonoc used is now gated. But a few yards west of the start of this lane on Ballyduff Road is a cinder track, which leads without obstruction or bog to the summit. Out and back this way would be a very quick jaunt. In my case, being on the bus, I carried on over the summit and came down into Glengormley via Glebe Road (head SW off the summit and you will hit a farm track). Very enjoyable.
