ake the road lading towards Claragh near Millstreet townhall car park (beside Centra). After a short while the road
bends right at a grotto, and a lane runs uphill to the left, curling around a broadleaf wood. Follow the lane for
about half-mile until you find a good track to the right, which should be signposted as Duhallow trail/Blackwater trail.
This winds along the edge of the woods, and will lead to Kerry, but you should notice an obvious path heading off to the left towards Claragh proceeding around another block of planted forestry. The path goes north and then west until you come to an entrance onto the open hillside with very little left of the mountain to climb. The views are good, the journey is pleasant most of the way and the effort is small. A cross decorates the summit. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/615/comment/2690/
