Good access and views from this useful intermediary summit.
Short Summary created by simon3  6 Nov 2011
This summit has famous views particularly towards the lakes in view such as Lough Tay and Lough Dan. and forms part of a number of circuits such as routes from Scarr and Luggala. An attractive way of reaching it is from the Sallygap to Roundwood road (R759) at one of a number of carparks such as one at O169073 A. (Note: on a good day these can often fill up by 10:30am.) Walk to the Pier Gates or entrance to the Luggala Estate which kindly allows walkers to descend into the valley of the Cloghoge River. Walk south on this over a bridge and heading west uphill from around O1580 0593 B. Return trip around 2h20m.
Two other places to start are from the Military Road R115 parking at around O113 074 C and walking nearly 3km SW to the summit or from the south perhaps after visiting Scarr/ Kanturk via around O136046 D. This last route requires you to cross the Inchavore river which isn't possible after heavy rain. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/386/comment/5145/
