Starting point and use of Duhallow way marked trail
by Ulsterpooka  31 Jul 2023
Today I went to walk Caherbarnagh East Top. I parked at W206889 starD and seen a "No Entry" sign. I went to the adjacent house and asked for permission to enter but was politely refused. I then went to grid reference W1925589215 starE this allowed me access on the right hand side of a house to the Duhallow way and was sign posted from the road. Once I crossed a few electric fences and went through a gate over a stile. I then walked the Duhallow way veering off and up to the 620 metre approx spot height on Caherbarnagh. This allowed me to hike to Caherbarnagh East Top. Once I done this I headed down the zig-zag track to the right and slightly below the summit. This let me rejoin the Duhallow way which completed a circular hike back to the motor which I parked tight in out of harms way so as not to cause an obstruction. The day was wet and windy with poor views. Only on reaching the bottom of the zig zag track did I see fleeting views. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1443/comment/24008/
