Popular hill to walk.
by paddyhillsbagger  30 Jan 2014
Thank goodness I had previously scaled some of the minor tops on the new listing!
Knockmaa is a lovely little hill clearly visible from the N17 as you head North towards Tuam. Access is via a car park and walking trail off the R333 road at M355 495 A. Walk Sth to a cottage and follow the trail either left or right (it's circular) to it's highest point. Head Sth again off track up through the trees and you will climb up a rocky scree slope where the trig point and fine views can be had. It was very windy the day I took my then 4yr old granddaughter up back in 2005 and the grey hairs on my head hadn't started appearing! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1331/comment/15798/
