first climb
by wild_brian  24 Oct 2015
new to MountainViews so just wanted to weigh in with my expierence. only getting into the walks/hikes. parked at kippure estate and walked up the right hand side road off the r759 for 10-15 mins until i came across the entrance to the forest and from there followed the winding road until i seen the rocky trail and water dripping down. thought to myself that surely this was the way to the top and i was correct. after a hard nights rain it was quite slippy and marshy in places. made it a little tougher than i expected but still moderate exertion level. i was full sure there was a "shortcut" to kippure estate and took obviously the wrong was on a bend where there was old vehicle tracks and a lot of old cut down branches. had to retrace my steps and go back the way i came.
opinions and advice welcome total time was 2 hours Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/241/comment/18367/

Climbed Seefin on Friday 19th June 09 on a somewhat overcast day. As described below I parked at a laybay O 068 154 A, although there are numerous similar small laybys along the road which would be suitable for two/three cars. From this point I crossed the road and follwed the forest edge on a well established track toward seefin. The track does swing around the forest hald way up seefin and begins to level out. At this point one could decide to leave the track and scramble directly up seefin but I chose to stick with the track and follow it around the southern face of seefin. To my delight numerous deer bounded out in front of me looking somewhat starteled to have a guest on a weekday!! The track eventually continues around and then takes you up seefin and right toward the fine tomb which stands proud on the summit. The ground conditions were quite good and firm under foot. From here I continued on to Seefingan Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/241/comment/3876/

If you haven't you should...!

Walked the Kilbride loop with the family on 28th Dec '14. These are mountains I have overlooked for many years and was pleasantly surprised at the lack of use/wear on the tracks and the views from all of the peaks. This walk took a shade over 4 hours with two kids (12 & 8 note: they have many days and experience hill walking) Added to the relative ease of the walk and the views are the passage graves and cairns on top of 3 of the 4 peaks. Some advice I was given before leaving was to park the car at the large gates entering the range as this is also opposite the local farm where it can be seen...... Also we walked it in bright low sunshine so counterclockwise meant the sun was at our backs for the most part. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/241/comment/17777/
