Good forest tracks to Wizards Hat
by eamonoc  27 Feb 2015
Having read other comments decided to try to ascend from the west after climbing Corran. Parked at forest entrance W 66980 94859 E room for one or maybe two cars parked carefully, Walked on good forestry track and after approx 150mts met a crossroads of forest tracks went straight through this junction and took next right turn, followed this track and ignoring next left went straight on a well defined grassy track to W 67387 94508 F at this point a good path uphil to the left leads the large stone cairn that adorns this top. Total distance car to car approx 3km, time taken 40mins. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/721/comment/17860/
