Short, steep, and simple
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy  30 Mar 2012
Approaching from the east along the R200, parking for several cars may be found on the right hand side in the Bellavally Gap at point H116 245 starA. 100m further along is a short track heading south past a concrete farm enclosure. Leave the track after 100m where it swings east, and continue south crossing open moorland. Continue directly south for 500m when the ground begins to rise steeply, but is still walkable, and changes from heather/reeds to mostly grass, firm underfoot. A further 500m will take you directly to the summit of Benbrack NE Top (496m), which is marked by a cairn. Time from car, 30-40 minutes depending on conditions.

A fine top!
by paddyhillsbagger  22 Jul 2011
Climbed Benbrack NE Top after Benbeg leaving the car in Bellavally Gap. A fairly short boggy lead in followed by an even shorter steep grassy climb leads to an expansive heathery top with a small cairn. Fine views of Benbeg and Cuilcagh as well as the Cavan lakes. I chose to walk on to Benbrack from here as the weather was fine. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/469/comment/6421/

Fine Summit
by concorde  28 Mar 2014
When viewed from Benbeg Benbrack NE top and Derrynananta Lake were very enticing. It was a short ascent to the NE top a picturesque peak with an eastern cliff and rock strewn corrie from Bellavally Gap (Point A) A pair of glossy ravens were breeding close by as they wheeled and rolled acrobatically around the summit Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/469/comment/15949/
