The fast and the furious.

Knocknaskagh is a fairly prominent hill in North Cork. It's possible to access via a Coilte forest entrance on the South East side mentioned by jackill. After about 500 metres, there is a smaller, muddier track on the left that zig zags up the hill. Take this and ensure to keep the forest on your left without taking any of the tracks that lead into the trees. After awhile the mess of felled trees will give way to open mountain, here turn left and head up hill for a few hundred metres to the trig point. The day I bagged this hill, I met 6 people on dirt bikes and three on quad bikes and I could hear the engines revving for my entire hike. That coupled with a very wet muddy track and a hill that is a jumble of felled trees made for a fairly forgettable experience. It was nice to look North to see Seefin and Slievereagh which I had climbed earlier in the day. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/702/comment/20415/

Deja Vu
by thomas_g  10 Aug 2012
You know that feeling when you pull up to the parking area and think, I've been here before and then arrive at Knocknaskagh summit and realise that you've been there before too. (At least I didn't have to hide behind the wall from the hail storm this time). Now thanks to MV, I'll at least know that I've been there before and not suffer the disappointment of a 50 minute drive to bag a peak I've already bagged. Although all this walk is on forest tracks, it is very rocky in places so don't be tempted to leave the boots at home. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/702/comment/14750/

Picture: Rubbish on Knocknaskagh
Bahh!!
by hivisibility  25 Nov 2013
Following a recent walk in the Nagles I came across this rubbish pile while descending Knocknaskagh back to the Castleblagh car park. Looks to be mostly asbestos tiles. they went fairly out of the way to dump this. Any advice as to who could be informed of this? Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/702/comment/15268/
