Remotest Cork with a great view to Glengarriff
Short Summary created by jackill  3 Aug 2012
Park at the forest entrance W142 717 A, room for 6/7 cars. Go SE on the public road for about 30 metres and walk through a gate straight into a boggy field. Head towards the left corner and carry on straight up the hill passing a rain meter.. You'll have to negotiate a few fences but there are obvious low points to get over if you look. The summit is on a rocky outcrop surrounded by grass. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/728/comment/5487/
