Park at X00458 94555 A where there is just room for one car without blocking the gate. Follow the forest track uphill as far as X00581 94954 B where there is a track uphill. Follow this track to where the trees have been cleared and cross the clearing to the indistinct summit area. There are fine views of the Knockmealdowns from the summit.
