For peak baggers only?

There is a new forest road running across the top of Knockfune. Coillte seems to be preparing for both harvesting and replanting. There is also a large aerial perhaps 300 meters from the very top. This was erected some years ago, probably to assess windspeeds for a windfarm that was never developed. It is hard to pinpoint the exact summit of Knockfune. A much better view is available just to the north outside the forest. It is now easy to link up both Knockfune and nearby Knockane using the forest roads and the Slieve Felim Way.

Overall Knockfune is not too exciting, and as it is close to much higher hills is easy to ignore. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/616/comment/6398/
