Magnificent Views
by paddyhillsbagger  4 Mar 2012
Started the walk at the 'Welcome To Mayo' sign G376 164 starC where there is just room to park on a side road. Followed part of a path beside the sign and information rock before turning left uphill. There are a number of sheep trails and tracks to follow, I only found them on the way down, which seems to suggest it's a popular climb despite the low usage on MountainViews. There is a little gully and stream ( used as the Sligo/Mayo border line) which I followed up to near the top where it levels off to give magnificent views of Lough Talt on one side, and the Nephins on the other.The trig itself is almost buried beneath the summit cairn. Give it about an hour up and down. Well worth a visit. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/753/comment/6705/
