Wet bog awaits you.
Short Summary created by jackill,  22 Sep 2010
Park at the saddle W23626 87990 A , in a forest entrance with room for 2-3 cars, and take the lower track marked on the map( the other is impassable, more like a forest ride) and follow it gradually uphill, turning left as you reach the crest of the hill along a winding track. The summit area is by my estimation across the bog 200 meters north from where the track crosses over the hill on a slightly higher patch of bog near a forestry corner.
