Climbed this on the way to Caherbranagh. It makes a nice stop, and affords gorgeous views of Mullaghanish (forgetting the garish TV tower) and the seemingly endless rolling Cahas to the south. We hiked in late February, and had nice views of the snow-topped Paps and Mangerton to the west. Parked at the beginning of a timber trail at 173 839 C, and followed the road east for 600 meters. We climbed a fence, and headed straight for the top of Knocknagowan. Even with recent dry and cold weather, the ground was marshy and boggy. I would imagine it's worse in the summer.
