A breeze of a walk
Short Summary created by wicklore,  8 Apr 2014
There is an approved access route starting at S93758 32578 A. Here there is a narrow trail with a signpost for Bree Hill showing walkers and cyclists. (Really only suitable for mountain biking). You can park just down the road at S93730 32513 B. Follow the narrow trail until you meet a forestry track. Turn right and then at S93676 32935 C turn left into the trees and make your way through the trees uphill. This is an interesting experience and a bit odd due to some unusual tunnelling amongst the trees. Heading northwest you will emerge after a few hundred metres at the summit area and come out onto the bike track. The immediate summit area has been deforested and was (in August 2012) a quite overgrown flattish area. The bike/walker trail passes about 50 metres to the south of the summit highpoint which appears to be a small overgrown rocky outcrop in a general area of messy brambles and other greenery. This is a short walk taking about 40 minutes return. Limited views due to forestry and tangled growth around summit area. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1315/comment/15559/
