An easy but rewarding stroll
by pdtempan  9 Apr 2022
I tackled Coolnasillagh Mountain from the minor road to the E, parking at C78630128 starC. From here there is a track which climbs gradually to the WNW, with views into Glenshane. At first it appears to make little progress towards the summit, but after a while it turns SW, and then a rougher track to the left climbs SE onto the ridge, so by this somewhat circuitous route you sneak up on Coolnasillagh from behind. There is a good path all the way and no fences or gates to contend with. From the ridge there is a fine view to the E towards Slemish and the Mourne Mountains and the final climb to the summit is also easy. The whole walk took me 50 mins there and back.
