A restricted view of the Galtys with rising forests
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy, jackill  28 Jan 2022
As of early 2022, the situation here has changed significantly since jackal's original summary. There is now a substantial road running from just past R94525 53427 starA running in both directions up Knockbane and Lackenacreena. Double gates block each side, but it is just possible to park a car there without interfering with access.

After a sharp bend park at a field gate(1 car only) at R94525 53427 starA.
Go over the gate and immediately right up an old disused forestry entrance.After a few hundred meters you will reach a new forest track, turn right and follow this to R94565 52881 starB, a crossroads, directly ahead look for a firebreak which will bring you to to R94538 52826 starC.
Turn right along an overgrown but passable track to R94603 52698 starD and then up a rough ride covered in sedge grass.
As the ground flattens out towards the top of the hill go left , skirting pools and rough ground to the summit trig pillar atop a mossy cairn.
The views are restricted due to foresty however the Galty and Slievenamuck ridges to the south are worth seeing from this viewpoint. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/678/comment/5437/
