Starting and ending at 615882 J, just a couple of hundred metres along the Maam road out of Leenaun vollage, there is space for a car or two on the left hand side of the road. Walk back down the road about thirty metres where you will see a track which follows a stream from Leenaun Hill. Leave the track at point 610882 K and cross the stream, and follow a fence with takes you all the way to the top, mostly grassy but occasionally quite steep. Spectacular views in all directions. Pic shows approach towards summit taken at about 400m. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/246/comment/4249/
