Approaching summit from the west
by hibby  5 Mar 2011
A geocaching route brought us (me, wife and 2 dogs) in a circular walk from the car park, west down into the valley, then up a green road (where we saw a group of around 15 female deer) on the western slope of the hill to a memorial to 4 British aircrew who died in a crash in 1941. From there, the path became increasingly poorly defined and the last 100 metres of ascent to the summit was a bit of a steep slog over the heather. The summit is rounded and remarkably undramatic for a hill of over 600m, its main redeeming quality being the views over the lake and the surrounding hills. A neat mini-cairn at the top (near the National Park signpost) is somewhat whimsical as there are no stones nearby, so they must have been carried up. Two plaques to deceased members of the Dublin and District Motorcycle club are on the lower slopes to the north. An access route from the north ("Pound Lane agreed access point") is marked out with black and white poles, replacing a former more direct route from the road.
