Joyce's suggestion (INP, iii, 586) that this peak is so named because of its resemblance to a pilgrim's staff with a crooked top seems without foundation.   Trostan is the highest mountain in the Antrim Hills area and the 419th highest in Ireland. Trostan is the highest point in county Antrim.

Parked car opp entrance to Glenariff Forest Park and ran up onto B14 taking the forest track to Essathohan Bridge. From there continued on the forestry road until reaching the fire break. Proceeded through this and then upon clearing forest - proceeded to summit. Have been here a few times both walking and now running. The view on this evening was magic and the descent back down via the Moyle Way great craic. Jumping fallen trees, streams etc. Washed the dog and myself just above the waterfall as you exit the forest. Fast descent on forestry tracks back down to car.
