We parked at the forest entrance on the R702 at 835 478 B, and approached Knockroe from the Aughnabrisky River. The forest tracks aren't exactly as shown on Sheet 68, but if you keep going NW through the forest from the end of the marked track, you'll eventually hit the river. Following the river avoids the fenced pasture and the steeper sections of the ascent to Knockroe. The picture shows the view from the summit looking NE, with the cairn and some ruined walls (which provide shelter from the wind), with Black Rock Mtn in the middle distance.
