The area NW of Benbeg stretches for kilometres before a man-made track or road intrudes on the view, so I resolved to explore some of it as part of my circuit. I parked the 4x4 at H13147 25289 A (room for one off-road vehicle parked beside the Coillte gate), and after completing Benbeg and Cuilcagh rather than returning by the direct route, I headed NW from the col that marks the lowest point between Benbeg and Cuilcagh. I aimed for the northern edge of the forest that borders the river, as marked on Sheet 26. My goal was to pick up the forest track that ends at H 125 261 B, which I successfully managed. The route back to my vehicle was straightforward.
The pic shows the northern fringe of the forest, which I was aiming for. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/378/comment/2529/
