Short Summary created by simon3, CaminoPat,  19 Jun 2018
Park off road next to gate at the saddle between Claragh Mountain and Curracahill W23626 87990 A. There's room for 3-4 cars to park safely. Climb gate and follow rough stone track keeping forest to your right. Gradual uphill climb until you come to an electric fence in open bog land at W22807 87047 B. Turn left at fence and continue following the old stone/grass track which eventually runs out at W22522 86841 C. Below the road you should have a fine view out over Kippagh Lough. From the end of the track to the summit the walk is across open bog land covered in coarse grass and heather. The best and safest route to the summit is a line midway between a series of wind turbines on your left hand side and a post and wire fence on your right hand side which runs all the way in a north westerly direction to the summit. On a windy day stay a safe distance from the post and wire fence as steep cliffs to the north await the unsuspecting trekker. No obvious marker for the summit point.

After taking in the magnificent views from the summit across into the Blackwater River (An Abhainn Mhór) Valley, retrace steps to car park. The round trip takes 2-3 hours depending on level of fitness. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1443/comment/18071/
