Some days are for peak bagging, others are for great long walks. After two weekends of long ones, I set off on a Sunday county highpoint trip. This one was done in 25 minutes from the Glendine Road carpark...as easy as Corn Hill or Slieve na Calliagh. The trail is marked...but this isn't necessary, as the muddy trail is clearly visible the whole way. The views at the top are very expansive, if not terribly breathtaking.

Sadly, the accessibility of the top was demonstrated by an empty Lucozade bottle and a few candy wrappers strewn about. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/399/comment/1710/
