Picture: Swarming with deer...

The most interesting thing about Ballycurragh was the fact that I spotted no less than 5 separate deer (see photo). Otherwise this was a relatively easy walk up a not terribly interesting mountain. Started where the Wicklow way leaves the road at T045 825 A and zig-zagged up the forest track to point T048 819 B. Although not marked on the OS map, the track continues SE at this point then swings NE to take you directly to the top. One hour and fifteen minutes had me back at the car.

Great fun finding the summit on this mountain. Views from the top include Croghan, Croghanmoira and Ballinacor, but altogether it is rather dull, mostly forest with the odd interruption from scramblers and quads.
However there are some fine views from the Northern face, including Lug, Keadeen, Ballineddan and Slievemann. Photo shows Lugnaquillia in glorious mid-November sunshine. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/381/comment/2053/

Picture: Ballycurragh hill peak
 
A peak by bike
by mickhanney  29 Jan 2011
I didn't realise the name of this hill until now. I thought it was called Sheilstown which is the neighbouring section along the Wicklow way. I wasn't expecting much when I set off yesterday. I was on a mountain bike and entered the trail head near Askanagap, between Askanagap and Ballycurragh bridge. The trail zig zags a bit upwards and the main trail continues along a fence line which was for the most part cycleable in low gears. As I gained ground though the ground conditions worsened and I lost grip as it was icy in parts and quite shaley. Pushed bike to top and was rewarded by great views. The trail down which brought me onto the Wicklow way was badly eroded in parts and again quite icy so cycling wasn't an option. Once onto the Wicklow way it was plain sailing. I traverse the roads and Wicklow way around here quite a bit. I'm glad to have taken the road less travelled today and discovered this hill and a network of trails for future exploring.

Enjoyable walk on good track.
by Harry Goodman  18 Sep 2013
From the outset might I express my sincere thanks to padodes for identifying an excellent start point for this walk which I did on 13 Sept 2013 in pusuit of my last 500m top on the MV list for Dublin/Wicklow. This had been long delayed with the thought that it would be an uninteresting climb enclosed in forestry for most of the time. Not so. I parked off road, with ample space for several cars and took the broad track up into the forest.. At T073820 C, where the main track turned abruptly right I veered left onto another good but narrower track which immediately led out onto open hillside. It then swung up right between the forest edge on it's right and a wire fence on the left. From here, with a couple of bends to the right it was plain sailing all the way to the top some 1.5 km along. The slope was in the main fairly gentle with a few short, sharp, rises en route and led up to T0571682359 D where it turned abruptly left. The MV accepted high point lay a further 100 metres along the fence line and was marked by a cairn. Due to the weather conditions I had limited visability but had sight of my next and final hill of the afternoon Ballycumber Hill on a day out which had also included Slieve Maan. Distance up and back was 5km and could be walked comfortably in about one and a half hours. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/381/comment/15187/
