There is a “new” forest track leading all the way to Knocknalougha South Top.
Having noted eamonoc’s advice re car break-ins at S 03061 09959 A car park I decided to park at Crow Hill car park R 983 089 B. I then followed the Adandhu Way from the West rather than the East. As did previous contributors, I made the last 200m of my way to Knocknalougha South Top from the north by fumbling through the pine trees. I had taken the precaution of wearing an OLD waterproof jacket as it is not a route for your Sunday best. I was covered in moss, twigs and pine needles when I reached the little pile of stones which marked the “summit” at S01934 08521 C and was surprised to see that it was at the end of a huge wide track that headed south west. Further investigations revealed that this track can be accessed from the Avandhu way by heading south at S01386 08995 D and the new track appears to the south east at S0108 0843 E and can be followed all the way to Knocknalougha South Top, S 01934 08521 C. This track can be easily seen using the Satellite facility on Google Maps Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1464/comment/19717/
