MountainViews.ie Picture about mountain Knockastakeen in area Galty Mountains, Ireland
Picture: Knockastakeen from the Lough Muskry track.
 
A real eye-opener for appreciating the Galty Mountains.
Short Summary created by Harry Goodman  21 Jul 2011
Park at R9200028300 A and follow the track going off to the left past a metal barrier and information panel. Continue up through all junctions to a stile. Cross over and follow the track up the now open hillside, ignoring any branches off to the left, At the crest, just as the track starts to descend, turn right (W) and go up the heather covered slope to the crest of the ridge and a small but distinct path. Turn left (SW) and follow along to the top C9150025800 B. Drop down to the right and then around the front of the small but sheer rocky escarpment before descending SE to pick up the Lough Muskry track. Turn left and follow back to the start. On a clear day the visual rewards from the top of this hill, reached with minimal effort, are magnificent. If time allows a walk out and back to the Lough is recommended. All within a 7.5km walk.
