Short walk to the hidden trig point.
by JohnRea  14 May 2022
Parked at R2664383249 starB and followed the forest road, taking right branch, to R2725383179 starD then south until the track quality got soft, stepped into the forest and followed line of track further south until we could see the higher ground to the right in the forest, trig point is at R2725383179 starD. It was a short walk, car to trig point and back in 30 minutes.

Because of the trees there were no views once you are on the forest track but this hill is very close to the Mid Clare Way route and has a number of historic monuments in the area that are worth a detour. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1305/comment/23514/
