Short walk and great views.
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy, simon3  18 Aug 2023
Start from either the north or south end of the Lough. From the south you can park around C1220 2620 starA and go around the south end onto paths that lead to the top. From the north you can start around C129269 starB and ascend the steep ground there to the summit.

There is also space for several cars to park at C12252 25597 starC, at the starts of the main trail.

Track 2224 shows a way of extending the walk around Lough Reelan.

The attractions of this summit are the amazing views which encompass the Errigal-Muckish ridge and the Urris Hills on the Inishowen peninsula. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/553/comment/5312/
