Up here recently as part of the WGL assessment. Park at the water commissioners gate, then to Round Seefin, Long Seefin, Spences mtn, Blaeberry mtn and then Chimney Rock. Easy walk, impressive boulders on the top of Chimney Rock, and an impressive but worrying thunder storm on the other site of the Annolong valley. It didn't take long to get off the tops once we saw the lightning close by! Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/178/comment/1008/
