The prettier path
by Colin Murphy  27 Sep 2021
Most approaches to this unremarkable hill are from the west, at Glenmacnass Car Park. However the experience can be enhanced greatly by taking the long way around and starting at O1581 0197 starB, (Scout Centre) where there is space to park for about 6 cars (although this can be crammed at weekends and during fine weather. Continue along the road to O1581 0197 starB where you will see a small gate on the right leading to a track that hugs the western side of Lough Dan. The views along this track are tremendous. Follow this as far as O148 037 starC and go through another gate where you will see a track on your left leading up the hill. From here it is a relatively easy climb of about 2km all the way to the top. An unlovely summit, but the views over Lough Dan redeem it. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1469/comment/23290/
