csd on Milk Hill, 2010
by csd  5 Apr 2010
I approached Milk Hill from the north, turning off the road at S251 125 B in Tooreen West and I followed the forest track to S25173 11703 C where I parked. There isn't a whole lot of room here to park without blocking the track, and you need a car with a bit of ground clearance to make it this far anyway, so you might be better off parking nearer the road.
My intention was to follow the marked forest track up to the Tooreen Mountain - Milk Hill ridge, and while this was possible, the 'track' is about as far removed from those I was more used to from Dublin/Wicklow. Although clearly still a commercial plantation, it's possible the track hasn't been used by vehicles since the forest was first planted. Although passable, it does peter out a bit towards the upper half of the forest, so you need tohead right towards the open ground and handrail the fence up.
Milk Hill is rather unremarkable itself, but does offer some nice views across to Knockanaffrin, and recent burning has kept the heather low, making ground easy underfoot. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/619/comment/4582/
