Followed Kerry Way until it emerged from wood at 62811 65060 B where a rough track ascended NW towards Esknaloughoge.
Track descends into pool at one point and you may have to negotiate it very carefully to avoid wet feet.
Very steep ground between Esknaloughoge and Lough Sallagh which can be avoided by traversing east before heading north. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/756/comment/18660/

Easy two Hills once you get to lake !

Parked where Melohara did at at B however crossed from forest at narrowest point 631658 C where there was a short tree cutting track and than headed up the two Esknaloughoges. Just ascend up one of the ridges till you reach the lake and two quick bags await. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/756/comment/20929/
