Update
by Jaak  11 Feb 2013
There is good news for anyone planning to climb Moylussa, as the dreaded forest track, which has been described in horrendous detail by many contributors, has been replaced by a new path. It is presumed this work was carried out by Coillte. If you are climbing from the Ballycuggaran forest side, drive up to the car park via the forest entrance, which is opposite the marina and nearby UL activity centre. Follow the East Clare Way until the trail turns left off the main forest track, at the top of a ridge. Continue straight on the forest roadway and walk up the next hill. When the path turns left, the new Moylussa track is on the right hand side – R 661 754 A. Follow this path uphill and continue on it when you reach the gates that lead onto the mountainside. This path will take you virtually all the way to the summit. The path runs along the right hand side of a fence for a period and as you gain height the path switches to the left. This is quite boggy terrain and it is best to walk along the edge of the path, rather than stay on it. When the ground levels off, you are quite close to the summit – a series of posts with plastic streamers lead you there directly. If you don’t spot these, the fence runs to the right hand side of the summit and then circles behind it. In clear weather you will have no bother at all spotting the large summit stone – otherwise its easy to GPS the short distance from the fence. Any finally, for anyone wishing for a cup of coffee or something stronger when they finish the climb, the Piper’s Inn is open again. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/390/comment/14916/
