Easily accessible, heathery, rocky summit in the Western knockmealdowns
Short Summary created by markmjcampion, jackill  19 Jun 2023
A few man-made interventions aside, this is a fairly featureless mountain in the W. Knockmealdowns.. It’s a heathery lump with a bare, rocky summit and commands great views of the local hills as well as The Galtees and intervening plains.

SW. Start from the car park at R98307 08960 starA. There is a track leading E across the bog which leads you onto the main Avondhu Way track. (You can also turn N on the tarred road and walk 200m to where the Avondhu Way crosses the road.) Follow the Avondhu Way as far as R99838 09709 starB before striking out N on the S spur of K. !hr+

E. Start at the ample CP at S03048 10006 starC and, heading W, tackle the v steep slopes of Knocknalougha. From here follow the county boundary as far as S00659 10098 starD before heading steeply ENE to the summit of K. 1.5hrs+
You can avoid the punishing start by following the route set out in track/1443.

NNE. Park at S01141 12709 starE and follow forest tracks S as far as S00283 11706 starF. From here head SSW along the well defined shoulder, reaching the summit after 2km of a steep slog. 1.5hrs

Notable tracks incl. track/2953, circular track/3542 and the long linear track/2053. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/188/comment/4948/
