Well hidden trig point

From Upperchurch village follow signs to Knockalough Loop Walk trailhead at forestry entrance GR R98851 59695 A. Proceed on foot through the barrier and follow the main forestry road as it winds it’s way towards the summit until you come to a T junction with a picnic bench. Turn left, then after approx 120m turn right. Now keep your eyes peeled ! After 200m or so watch out for a small path through the trees on your right. This will bring you the short distance to the trig point in a tiny, mossy glade. Now give yourself a pat on the back for finding it Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/706/comment/14949/
