I can certainly agree with Simon on this one -- if it hadn't been for the OS marker at the summit (another embedded toe-height one like Arderin), we wouldn't have known we were at the real summit. Wanting more than a 60m schlep up from the road, we parked where the Slieve Bloom Way leaves the road and enters the forest SE of the summit. Unfortunately most of the minor tracks shown in Sheet 54 aren't actually tracks at all, but forest rides. They are usable as paths, but don't expect convenient, hard-to-miss junctions off the main track. We managed a Slieve Bloom Way - Stillbrook Hill - R440 and back to the car circuit in just over an hour in good weather. This first photo shows the gently graded slog up through boggy terrain to the top, approached from the forest south of the summit. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/426/comment/1081/

3/5/2013 Left road at point B, I followed an obvious boggy path with curious little plastic dams in a boggy drain alongside it, I went to the highest point on this path at 513mts. There is a very obvious large boggy mound on the left here. I went sharply to the right and after about 5min walking over rough boggy heathery ground, I found the summit trig point.
