Short and simple...with good views
Short Summary created by peter1,  19 Aug 2014
This is a short and very pleasant walk into a less popular part of the Connemara mountains. Leaving Clifden on the N59 towards Letterfrack, take the right hand turn signposted for Lough Auna. At the end of the tarmac road, its possible to motor on for a further 500 metres or so to reach a gate leading to an old farmhouse. There is parking for one car here. Choose your route to the summit. good views in all directions though restricted a little to the East by the Bens. Up and down in an hour or so.
Its possible to create a small circuit by heading West from the summit over the broad forested ridge and descend just west of the lake to the road. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1271/comment/15515/
