Straightforward trail to summit.
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy  28 Nov 2022
One starting point is from D12290 29427 starA, where there is parking for a about 6 cars. Cross the road where you’ll see a sign for the Croaghan Way. This trail is narrow and in poor condition in places, especially in winter. In fact it disappears completely on occasion. Simply follow the trail directly north for 1.5km up a gently rising slope all the way to the unmarked summit. A slightly shorter alternative is to from point D11975 29707 starB, where there is parking for a couple of cars at the side of the road. Hope the fence and a ditch and walk about 200m east across boggy ground where you should pick up the trail, then turn north towards the summit. Allow about 1 hour up and down.
