Alternative Route to mast road
by Eamonn96  28 Apr 2011
This mountain can also be accessed by following the Doenen Walk which starts near Glencar until it's end and crossing bog and hills (Its quite tiring) until you reach the summit using the Mast to guide us. Be careful to avoid bog holes and the ground under other less dry weather could be challenging. I would advise that this route not be taken alone as it is quite remote but spectacular.
