Viewless hidden top. Wellies useful at times.
Short Summary created by simon3, jackill,  18 Oct 2011
Park at the forest opening R98851 59695 A, room for 5 cars. There is a map here that is worth studying for example if you want to make a loop of the walk. Meander up the track for about 2 kms until you reach a tee-junction at R9841258602 B. Turn left at this and then right after around 120m along a muddy forest road. With dense trees to your right walk SW around 240 metres until you come to R9824758399 C, a small path N through the forest. Follow this for 60m to find the trig pillar.
Up and down should take 90 to 110 minutes. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/706/comment/5465/
