Easy Hill in western Galtees
by Onzy  6 Dec 2013
Easy ascent using forest tracks most of the way from the entrance to Coumban Forest, before climbing up what was previously a ride between the trees and is now the south eastern edge of the forest, the remainder having been harvested recently.

The ride starts at about R819198 C, at a point where machinery has clearly accessed the hill - much churned up ground. The going is steep here, today was dry but if it were wet, this ride could be real trouble coming down.

An hour will see you easily up and down. This hill would also provide a relatively easy start point for a longer traverse of the western Galtees, with access towards Temple Hill and beyond possible, making use initially of a network of forest tracks.
