An obvious place to start is at the beginning of a short track A (C17206 40627). This rough but initially cyclable track leads you to rough ground from which is it reasonably easy to reach the top. Note, the top has a recorded ringfort on it. There are a number of animal tracks leading to the top.
There is a huge panorama of 360 degrees of views from this summit including Muckish, Slieve Snaght, the Knockalla Bay, several coastal points and bays. To the SW is the Harry Blaney bridge, built 2009.

A quick up-and-down with nice views.
by David-Guenot 3 Oct 2015
Not much space for a car alongside the road, so I parked near a junction with a dead end at Coshia (C1702 4075), leaving enough room for other vehicles to pass. From there, I headed straight uphill, crossing a track en-route. The only obstacle is a stonewall, but I quickly found a breach and carefully crossed it, too. From there it is a steep but short pull up to the top, following the faint sheeptracks that zigzag through the heather. On top, you will find the ruins of a stone fort and will enjoy some nice views over Lurgacloughan Bay, Mulroy Bay and the Knockalla ridge to the E and SE, Ballyhiernan Bay to the N, the N end of Rosguill and Cnoc na Slea to the W, and the Derryveaghs and Loughsalt Mountain to the S and SW. I came down the same way. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/1349/comment/18344/
