Easy afternoon walk up popular hill
by bogllama2210  14 Feb 2024
Decided on Croaghmoyle as my first summit after dislocating my knee a few months ago (ironically not while hillwalking, but while working in a spud field) as the road to the top made it the least risky. I did the full 8.8km round trip from M099943 starA because I didn't like the look of the potholes on the way in, but it is still easily drivable if you have a good car, unlike me. It is no longer possible to drive all the way to the summit however as there is now a locked gate just after the bridge at M10039624 starB. I didn't get any of the views from the summit as the clouds came down before I could reach the top, but the summit area is slightly nicer than it used to be (as nice as a summit with masts on it can be) as the burnt out fiesta is gone and a nice bench has been installed near the trig pillar that overlooks Lough Beltra on a clear day. I was surprised at the amount of people I met on the way up and down, certainly more than I expected for a dull Tuesday afternoon in February, clearly it's proximity to Castlebar and ease has made it a popular spot.
