Easy walk with good views of the Blackstairs.
Short Summary created by simon3,  7 Jun 2010
As of 2010 the forestry to the south of the summit has been harvested leaving good views of the broad northern end of the Blackstairs.
An easy way to start is from the SE at Kilbrannish Forest Recreation Area car park at around S842568 A. Follow a marked track which goes generally NW towards the summit which is around 1 km away.
It is also possible to start from the less formal car park at Corrbut Gap S832568 B, walk uphill (north) with the forest edge on your left. Continue in the same direction after crossing a forest track to reach the top.
It is possible to use forest tracks as shown on OSI Mapsheet 68 to reach Greenoge to the east. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/602/comment/5361/
