Great views from conical hill on the western end of the Galtees ridge.
Short Summary created by markmjcampion, jackill, YoungJohn  18 Aug 2023
Temple Hill is a distinct peak at the most westerly edge of the Galtees. It's a grassy hill with a scattering of rock and is usually firm underfoot. Views are widespread over the Galtees, Knockmealdowns, Ballyhouras as well as the flatter ground of S Tipp and N Cork.

SW. Park at R81980 18545 starA, a forest entrance with room for 10 cars.
Walk up the forest track making your way after a few km to the start of a smaller track at R82736 20293 starB. Follow this track, passing by a sheep pen and onto open hillside. Go uphill here to pick up a rough track at approximately R 83300 20170 starC. Follow this track to the ridge turning N when you reach it and then on to its end crossing a small rock field to the summit cairn. 4 hrs+ 12k return.

SE. Park at R86800 19700 starD and head for R86146 19943 starE via the route on track/2079. From here either head first for Knockaterriff Beg before heading WSW fro Temple Hill or take a more direct route for the summit of TH, hiking up the more western ridge from this point before veering NW and eventually picking up the ridge mentioned in the first route above. Return via Knockaterriff or Monabrack for a good loop walk.

W. Find somewhere to park near R80498 21696 starF and follow track/3508 first to Paradise Hill and eventually out of the forest all the time following the western ridge until you veer NE for the summit close to the 700m contour line. [1.5h and 4k]

Other notable tracks include track/2295 4hrs+ 12k and track/2456 14k and 5h+ Linkback:
