Walk, don't drive!
by Harry Goodman  27 Nov 2021
On 22 June 2011 we parked at M0995094300 starB (as recommended by three5four0). From here we followed the forestry access road running more or less due N. After an initial gentle walk uphill through the forest the track opened out to a fine view across the valley to Kilhale (384m) which, while only an outlier of Croaghmoyle's summit, is from this viewpoint the prominent hill. To the right mostly out of sight behind the trees we could hear the throbbing noise of a windfarm. Having descended down the track and crossed a bridge over a stream M1000096300 starC the track then rose more steeply all the way to Croaghmoyle top M0980098300 starD. It was at this point, before the start of the climb that we saw the warning notice that only 4x4 access should be used beyond that point. Frankly having seen the condition of the surface to that point I would not even recommend taking a car beyond our start point, unless it really is an old banger, and certainly not beyond the bridge whatever its state. The Trig Pillar stands on a small mound a short distance beyond a Communications Installation which adorns the top. There is a fine view down to Lough Beltra and the Nephin Begs to the W and N and to the large bulk of Nephin more or less due N. All in all we found this a worthwhile walk of some 2 hours with rewarding views from the top. Apart from Nephin I have not walked in North Mayo and found that this short walk, and its overview of the Nephin Begs, has whetted my appetite to make their acquaintence.
