I approached Knockrower from the South-East , skirting around East of Lough Nambrackdarrig after coming down off Knockbrack. It is slow going and adds a lot onto a walk if you decide to do it from this side and detour from Knockbrack on the way to Dromderalough. It might be better to include it as part of a loop walk from the Old Kenmare road in the valley to the West. The summit itself is unusual in that it is a large boulder lying on a rocky outcrop. It looks too large to have been deliberately placed there so I presume that it was dropped there by the last glacier as it melted 9,000 years ago. The views over the old Kenmare road are a bit bleak although there are some nice views in the distance of the Reeks and the mountains of South Kerry. To the North-East, the huge expanse of Mangerton dominates the skyline. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/354/comment/2303/
