A rewarding way to access the Reek
Short Summary created by Onzy, jackill  19 Feb 2015
Park at L87542 80732 A where there is room on the roadside for 3 cars, or further up opposite some farmhouses, we sought and recieved parking permission at the fifth house just before the road becomes a farm track. Cross a sheepwire fence heading roughly north east across an open field by a fence. The ground becomes steep and rough with rocks as you slowly gain height to the summit cairn. You can also reach the summit via a car split and a long , rewarding traverse of the range starting at L94951 80955 B.
