Go to the forest entrance at ColGn Sc (S22452 09704). there is room here for a few cars.
Walk down the forest track across the road, crossing a ford and follow the track to a T-junction, turn left and continue to track's end and you can see open ground. Continue directly easy up the heathery summit, which is a steepish in parts. There is an old wooden cross erected in a pile of stones to the north west of the broad summit area, but the top is an unmarked area of flattish bogland about 600m further east. There are good views towards the Knockanaffrin Ridge and the Comeraghs. Time from car to summit: 55 minutes.

csd on Milk Hill

I approached Milk Hill from the north, turning off the road at A (S251 125) in Tooreen West and I followed the forest track to B (S25173 11703) 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. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/619/comment/4582/

For an easy Sunday stroll starting at C (S22348 09385) , a forestry entrance and picking your way across a felled area will bring you the undistinguished summit of Milk Hill. The photo is taken at the summit of Blentasour 402m on the map looking towards the Knockmealdowns.
I thought the churn was appropriate. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/619/comment/3307/

oldsoldier on Milk Hill

Milk hill stands alone on the monavullaghs with views over the slievenamon valley. I walked here on Sat 5th of Sept 2009. I parked my car at D (S23440 09704). There is room here for about seven cars. I went down the forest road directly opposite. I followed this road to the first junction where I went left and followed the logging road up as far as the older trees. Here there is a ramp on the right that leads to the edge of the forest at E (S23453 09932). Straight onto the ridge and up to the summit. A timber cross sits here and oversees the valley. I paid a flying visit to Blentasour and back down to the car by following the forest service road. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/619/comment/4078/

Picture: Churned up
Must be an easier way to deliver the milk.
by eamonoc 24 Aug 2013
Thurs 22/8/2013. Arrived at point a as described by jackill followed route to felled area of trees. Crossed this felled area with great difficulty. It was like a grassy swamp full of hidden stinking pools of water and head high reeds not to mention a myriad of hidden tree stumps, I crossed this area in a leftward diagonal direction heading for some mature beech trees, upon reaching these I discovered a stream running down hill and followed it uphill through a fairly obvious firebreak, the going was very rough and in parts overgrown with mature GORSE! again, so at times went into forest to my left and was able to push uphill to a clearer area of the firebreak and eventually made it to open hillside. The going was much easier now only some knee high heather to contend with. Made it to the undistinguished top of Milk Hill and then crossed over to Bleanastour Mt in about 20mins. It took about 3/4 hr to get back to car and it involved some gorse and briar bashing. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/619/comment/15090/

Not the cream of hills

On a clear day, and I was blessed with a remarkably fine one in December, there are fine views of the Knockmealdowns to the west and the Comeraghs to the east. Image shows ridge extending from Seefin to Coumfea. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/619/comment/21847/
