A walk with so many options.
by Harry Goodman  19 Sep 2013
This is a hill though low in height is of considerable bulk covering some 15km sq. It is also a hill that is serviced by three National looped walks and the Wicklow Way all of which open up opportunities for walks of varying length and intensity. The three loops are Mangan's (9km), Ballycumber (14km) and Kyle 20km) and all start near Tinahely but can be joined at various points around the hill (as in my case) and linked together to suit a walker's interest or time available. All three routes, while not crossing the high point of the hill, pass close to it thereby making its inclusion available for very little extra effort. Routes are downloadable from the National Looped Walks web-site.
As I was short for time having climbed Slieve Maan and Ballycurragh Hill earlier in the day I drove to T050772 G. From there I followed a minor road down (SW) across a narrow bridge to a junction marked by a low level stone monument, where I turned left onto a stone and gravel farm track parking off road at T 0392677649 H where a green lane joined it on the right, 1.5km from leaving the main road. I then followed the track S a short way to T0391076459 I and took a narrow rough track on the right up into the forest signed for the Ballycumber Loop. Once clear of the forest the track turned right and followed the forest edge up to a shallow col, about 300 metres W of Pt. 397 (known locally as Garryhoe) and crossed a stile. I turned right and followed the fence up a broad gentle rise over good, soft, peaty ground. Where the waymarked walks turned down left I continued straight on up along the fence line to T0309876082 J I turned left and, continuing to follow the forest edge, walked out to the Trig Pillar marking the top of the hill. Unfortuately as the weather had closed in the views commented on by others were not seen apart from a glimpse of Croaghan Kinsella and Annagh Hill to the SE on my way down. Total distance walked 4.5km. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/683/comment/15190/
