MountainViews.ie Picture about mountain Knockbrack in area East Coast, Ireland
Picture: The top - A small island of uncultivated ground
 
A short and easy trip off the M1.
Short Summary created by Harry Goodman  2 Jun 2014
If approaching from the M1 leave it at J6. Park off road at a wide double gated entrance to a field O1526260153 A and take a wide stoney track up to a fork. Keep left and follow up to another gate and out on to another field. If it is sown out, to avoid disturbing the crop, follow it around by it's right edge and out onto a third field. The trig. pillar marking the top of the hill lies a short way into this field and sits on a small uncultivated raised island of grass and heather O1539059391 B. If crops are sown or unharvested at the time of visit take special care not to disturb them in the short walk out to the top. There is an expansive view out N and W across the flat Meath countryside and S to the start of the Dublin Hills. Just over 1.5km up and back. If in the area near Naul or passing J6 on the motorway it is only a short detour in both time and distance to this small hill. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1321/comment/15565/
