An Easy Hike
by JohnFinn  18 May 2022
Crohaun is an easy hike - it only takes about 45 minutes to get there from the parking area and back - so it's best to combine it with a walk up to Coumaraglin or even Seefin a bit further on. Apart from ticking a box, Crohaun rewards one with fine views across the countryside. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/501/comment/23519/
