Summary created by jackill 2014-08-29 13:13:36
Park near the old hostel site at Ballydavid room for 2-3 cars,at the forestry entrance KilMoy Brn (S01816 27948) and walk uphill on a good forest track to to A (S02055 26681) turn right and on to B (S01141 26901), cross up through the wire to the topmost track and follow that to C (S00790 26330) and from there turn uphill to the summit of Slieveanard NE.
As you ascend look back down to the curious field of small rocks below you.
The summit is marked by a cairn, trig pillar and a shelter from the wind. On a clear day you have tremendous views of the Knockmealdowns, the Comeraghs, Slievenamon, the ridge of Slievenamuck and the Slieve Felims away across the plains of South Tipperary.
Carry on over rough ground to find the track at the forest edge at D (R99948 26236) ,this track will take you past the trackside summit of Slievanard

Poor Slieveanard, the second last summit on the Galtys ridge, if it were last even that would be something. As it is ,its another summit desecrated by a forestry track often used by scramblers and quads. Nothing then for the walker except a small cairn and another box ticked. Linkback:

The inside tracks
by Colin Murphy 4 Oct 2021
Probably the most straightforward approach to this summit is to park at the forest entrance at E (S0096 2426), and follow the forest trail NW for about 2km to F (R998 250), emerging from the woods, then cross a gate on the right onto another forest trail. Follow this up the hill for another 1km (it is quite steep in one part and has treacherous rocks underfoot), which will take you to the high point. The top is marked by a pile of rocks just off the track. Fine views of the Galtys and the Knockmealdowns to the south. Linkback:
