The perfect antidote to cabin fever!

This is a pleasant enough short walk into an unfrequented part of Connemara. Looking at the map, there is a track which appears, from the road anyway, to be suitable for a mountain bike. I was only able to cycle around 5-600 metres. I left the bike at L92988 39436 B.
The views are really good, although the haze reduced visibility somewhat.
Parking is available beside the GAA grounds at the turnoff for Rosmuc at L92806 38552 C Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1257/comment/17578/
