Fine day spoilt by Scramblers
by ewen  21 May 2017
Started at the Coillte gate at 068145 B where there is parking for 2 cars. I then followed the forest road around until the first turn off to the left. This takes you along to the fire break/path at 07051565 C which leads directly to the top of Seefin.
From the outset there was evidence of quads and scramblers - fences down, churned up paths and two new tracks up to Seefingan. On the way back down after going up Seefingan I had to leave the path to give way to 5 scramblers making there way up the path to Seefin, This was the same route I had taken up and the path had taken some beating. My gopro did catch them on video, though' The Quads and Scramblers are avoiding the national park territory but I don't know what Coillte think. It put a complete dampener on my day.
