Stupid Spruce!
Short Summary created by jackill,  11 Dec 2011
Park at the forest entrance S04338 73101 A room for 5 cars. There is an option to park also at the forest entrance across the road. From the forest entrance walk downhill to the north for 50 meters and enter the forest to your left on a good forestry road. Follow this road uphill to S03259 73379 B. Enter the forest here and head uphill between the parallel lines of trees, this way is fairly passable at first. After 100 meters the moss really begins to take over and the trees become lower and harder to push through. The summit area has smaller trees and more open space.
You can either go back the way you came which is bad or head directly downhill, aiming for S03313 73032 C, which is also bad. Heading directly downhill does cut the walk distance. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/593/comment/5352/
