The heathery top in 2008
by wicklore  20 Jun 2020
I approached Stookeen from the south and parked at S940 675 B. From here I followed the Wicklow Way, and headed north along a delightful grassy track, with high hedgerows on each side. This was muddy in places, but not unpleasant. A fence and stile are reached at S944 678 C which, when crossed, bring you out onto one of the forest tracks that circle Stookeen at about 340 metres. This is probably the point csd also reached from the east from which he reached the summit. From here it was a straightforward haul up through the trees, emerging onto the heathery slope and finding my way up to the summit trig pillar.. Great views north to the lesser known Lakeen, Seskin and Muskeagh hills, as well as the higher mountains of Keadeen and Lugnaquillia further north again. To the south the Blackstairs were cloudy but visible. Another hill easily reached if doing the Wicklow Way, or else just a somewhat quieter place to walk if that’s what you seek.
