Devastation
by Colorado  16 Dec 2019
Knocknaskagh has been bulldozed from logging, making it look like a war zone. The positive is that it opens up the view. For such an easy, short trek to the top, I was surprised to see a marker with a stone wall and bench at the top, like one would see on top of Carrauntoohil or Mt. Brandon.
