Briars, pines and pain
Short Summary created by simon3, jackill  24 May 2013
Start from the forestry entrance at R90294 66782 A and walk uphill, taking two lefts and one right off the main track onto a very rough track thats almost blocked near the end with felled trees, to R90538 68028 B. A rough but managable push to the left through the trees and undergrowth will bring you to open bog and the heathery summit cairn. Return the same way.
Another route is from Lisgariff East at R919 692 C.
The summit has views of the distinctive Shannon hill area scenery, smallish hills, forestry, farms and there is a view of Keeper Hill, the local mountain. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/558/comment/5317/
