Benaaaaarrrrrggghd!!

Just Say No! Really! The nadir of peak bagging.

Dreadful clear-felled summit. To compound matters the way off back to the car park (short of retracing ones steps) is not obvious, but such exists by following the gougings of the digger to the SW until you reach a woodland road. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/512/comment/17640/

Unpleasant clear-cut forest
by skhg  13 Jul 2017
Benard was clear-cut in the last couple of years, it's got several very obvious tracks leading to the summit. We did it as a point of interest on the way up to Temple Hill - of which it offers clear views. Great if you enjoy a wasteland of smashed treetrunks and grassy overgrowth Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/512/comment/19603/
