An enjoyable start to the day
by Harry Goodman  1 Jun 2012
On 29 May 2012, on my way to climb Keadeen Mt., I decided to go and have a look at Slievecorragh but was undecided where to start. After checking the East-West Mapping Wicklow Mts. West (1:30,000 Sheet) I noticed what appeared to be a forest track starting about 100m in from the R756 on the NE side of the hill at N 9513504828 C. On arrival I found that all the land in front of the forest appeared to be taken up by private housing with no apparent access into the the forest. On enquiring at one of the houses the owner very helpfully advised me that it was indeed possible to access the forest from the road by walking a short way along the entrance to Slievecorragh House and, even more importantly, that there was public right of way to do so. She also told me that it would be in order to park off road alongside the boundary wall for the house. About 100m along the surfaced driveway I turned in left onto a cleared area and the forest entrance barrier. I followed the good track along, as it wound its way gently uphill, to it's end about 800m along N 9516104080 D and then continued on a much narrower path into the forest. This soon led out to a wide very rough stoney track fringing the forest N 9514004035 E. I turned right and followed it up to it's crest N 9484304150 F. The summit marked, by a substantial cairn, lay only a few metres to the left across the heather, and very nearby was the "Dan Clancy" chair, so eloquently commented upon by wicklore in his earlier comments on this summit. "Teddy" as ever continues to sit on vigil. This is a fine little top to visit, with the added value and uniqueness of the chair. It can be climbed with very little effort. From the top I returned to the wide stoney track and followed it down to the left (N and then NE), keeping the forest on my right, to meet the original forest access track at N9493404516 G where I turned left and followed it back to my start point. A throughly enjoyable short walk of some 2.4k and a very nice start to my day spent in the Wicklow Mts. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/747/comment/6838/
