On Sunday (19/03/06), I tried the route suggested here by 'jackill'. When I got to the forest entrance, the gate was locked and someone parked there in a 4x4 told me that there was no access. I get the impression that they do not want anyone going up there as they are constructing a wind farm in this valley. As it turned out, this was a good thing as I found a much more interesting route. I went around to the East of the mountain via some narrow roads and parked at W124 775 A (Space for 1 car). Directions.....Walk about 300m West and take the right turn. Stay on this road into the forest and you will come to a crossroads with a construction road at about W109 779 B. There are signs here saying that there is no access via the construction road which is fine as the objective really is to get out of the forest and onto the open hillside to the West. Proceed NW through the forest for about 300 metres (some of it is felled), over the fence (which is the Cork/Kerry border) and you are now on open hillside away from everything. Follow the edge of the forest in a SW direction and stay on the Northern side of the hill. By doing this, you stay away from the communications masts, electricity pylons and the wind farm and any potential aggro ;o). The best thing about this route is that you have really nice views from Mangerton & Crohane to the West, the Paps to the North and to NE to Mullaghanish as you walk the 2km or so to the summit. There is nothing to mark the summit, no cairn or stones. I took the summit to be the highest piece of ground in the ridge running E/W. This ties in with the OS map which shows the 506m summit in the centre of the 500m contour.
Return by the same route. Total walk time at an easy pace to summit and back = 2.5 hrs. Trackback:
