Worth It for the Views
by JohnFinn  20 Feb 2022
Crohan West affords fine views across the countryside: to the west and south, the main range of the Knockmealdowns; to the north, the Golden Vale and Sliabh na mBan; and to the east, the Comeraghs. We climbed it from the north side via the Liam Lynch Monument. From the summit we continued in a south-west direction and returned to the car park via a path which wends down through some pleasant woodland. Well worth the effort.
