Wilderness Walk
by muddyboots  16 Dec 2014
Knockbrack was climbed as part of the ridge including Dromderalough and it's NE Top. Started from V974773 A which is the road just off the R569 Kilgarvan. Parked by a farm (one space) as large "no trespass " sign on the road. No one challenged me so I continued to the forestry entrance by foot.climb one gate then encountered another further on which says "please close". There is a Coillte notice and I wonder are the signs more to stop illegal deer hunting. While Paddy Dillons book says to ascend outside the forest boundary, the forest trial ascends for 3km. Keep right at any turn until high up when a bend is conveniently located by the forest edge and a fence is 50m from the track V957775 B. Climb over (no barb wire on this section) then over a gate and follow a wide cleared forest track north to Knockbrack. The forest is on your left. There is one newly barbed fence to get over. Car to Summit 1hr. There is a cairn which is not the OS 610m spot - this is an unmarked mound slightly NW. The terrain between knockbrack and dromderalough and spot 654 is difficult with numerous unmarked lakes and rocky ridges and outcrops. I did this in complete mist conditions and regular compass use and GPS is necessary. Return was by same route. 4.5 hrs total for 13km. Pity about the weather as the views will be magnificent and the walk is isolated. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/255/comment/17760/

Knockbrack has a number of small unnamed loughs nestling in its sides which offer quite spectacular views, including this one, snapped in late afternoon, looking west towards the Dunkerron Mountains. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/255/comment/17947/
