West is best
Short Summary created by jackill, thomas_g  15 Jul 2012
While it's possible to get here from Nowen Hill, it's probably preferable to approach from the west. Park at W10378 51710 A a gated track entrance, room for 2 cars (just) and follow the track up the hill, keeping right at a fork. This track will lead to a small gate at W11081 51903 B which allows access to open mountain. Head for Nowen Hill SW keep to the high ground along the ridge. The long grass can make for slow going and it's a bit boggy in the dip between Nowen Far west and Nowen SW, but fine otherwise. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/437/comment/5196/
