Short Summary created by jackill, Dessie1  14 Jan 2012
If you are climbing this hill probably you will visit it from Seefin North Top .Park at the carpark at the start of The Black road R89306 20345 A (Point A) (ht333m), and follow the Black road through two gates. After passing through the second gate climb the bank and follow the wire fence west towards the summit of Seefin N Top.
From Seefin N Top cross the wire fence you have been following heading south through a rough boggy field.
Cross another wire fence and climb uphill and then across a short expanse of heathery bog to the summit Tor.
Fine views of the Galtys, the Comeraghs, and the Knockmealdowns for a small effort.
If you prefer you can head directly downhill to the carpark from the summit but be warned a carpet of knee high heather and ferns hides a multitude of ankle twisting opportunities.
#Also beware of the 4 foot high ditch with barbed wire that needs to be tackled if heading direct from the summit to the main car park area.
NW of the summit also has a large rocky outcrop which you will see to your right if descending from Seefin North summit. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/629/comment/5388/
