Easy ascent from east
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy  27 Nov 2014
Park at Q717 056 A A, the highest point of the Aughils to Camp road, where there is room for 1/2 cars. Head directly west, the ground cover being knee-high heather for about 1km. The slope gradually increases and becomes quite steep at around 400m ascent. The heather disappears and the terrain is mostly grass and rock, and firm underfoot, (despite recent heavy rain) and after 1.5km you will reach the summit of Knockbrack at 459m, a longish area with the highest point, which is at the eastern end, being quite indistinct. There are some rocky outcrops a couple of metres lower at the western end (pictured). 45 minutes from car to summit. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/589/comment/5348/

Parked at 687065 B, just before a gate on the Dingle Way & followed the Dingle Way for a short before turning left onto a track and then right at the next junction. Followed tracks then a bog road to a small land slide, complete with buried dead sheep in its debris at 698054 C, this hides the start of the upper track, but its just as easy to head straight up hill as the gradient eases quickly. A fine view point for eating your lunch at, from here it was only a short walk to Lack. From continuation see Lack... Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/589/comment/4124/
