This summit is best reached via Knocknabro West Top. Park at laneway to old farmhouse now in ruin at A (W15905 83498). Room for 1-2 cars to park. Climb gate at entrance and follow post and wire fence heading north until B (W16029 84252). From there head across open hillside in a NNW direction. It is slow going across long grass and heather cover to the summit. As you gain altitude you will meet another post and wire fence coming up from the west, i.e. on your left hand side. Follow fence to Knocknabro West summit, which is located along the fence line. No obvious marker for summit other than a nearby very small lake, which on the day of the walk was almost dry. Fantastic views across the Blackwater Valley and to the west towards The Paps. From the summit when facing north the post and wire fence heads to your right for approx. 50 metres and then turns NE in the general direction of the summit of Knocknabro North-East top. Follow fence until it ends at C (W16319 86025). From there the summit area is in view although less than 400 metres away. There is no obvious marker point other than a small raised bog area at the summit.

A watery end
by Colin Murphy 30 Mar 2022
My third Knocknabro in a day seemed, like its brothers, to be as dull as ditchwater until my descent brought some reward. I approached from the East top, which is about 1km south, and involves a slog though heather for most of the way. Featureless summit, unmarked, and barely noticeable as a separate entity. I decided to trudge my way directly west as a means of descent so that I could at least enjoy some views of Lough Glannatreaghaun beneath the Paps. This proved an effort, with unrelenting heather, marshy in places. And while I finally came in sight of the lough, the more rewarding sight was that of multiple small backlit waterfalls tumbling from the northern spur of Knocknabro West. A perfect spot for enjoying a well-earned lunch. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/1454/comment/23460/
