From Seefingan the summit of Corrig Mountain is an obvious choice. Although is appears from the tracks appearing on the saddle between Seefingan and Seehan that many people choose to bypass Corrig! Straightforward pull up from Seefingan, and with the fantastic views on offer over Dublin it is well worth the investment. Views over the kilbride rifle range are also clear on route to corrig. A small concrete pillar indicates the summit of Corrig and it is also evident that scramblers are active in the area. From corrig there is a qucik ascent of Seehan on offer Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/247/comment/3878/

The trek to Corrig from Seefingan is very boggy in parts, especially in the saddle. The Sugar Loaf, as always, is striking, when it appears from behind the shoulder of Kippure. The views of Dublin from the summit are the best for the circuit. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/247/comment/2967/
