The inside tracks

Probably the most straightforward approach to this summit is to park at the forest entrance at S0096 2426 starF, and follow the forest trail NW for about 2km to R998 250 starG, 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: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/666/comment/23297/
