One place to start is from the forest entrance at H49409 83039 L on the B48 near the crest of the road from Omagh to Gortin. There is notice board here which describes the place as the Start Point for Route A of the Cairn Sunday walk held on the last Sunday in July at 2.30. This is a walk to Mullaghcarn

Getting from this starting point to the tracks that take you to the summit of Curraghchosaly may not be entirely straightforward. The Ulster Way could be used however you would need to descend 60 or 70m and go over 1km to do it. There is also the Altaravan Trail marked as going north along the road and then heading up a slope to reach the forest tracks to the SE of the summit. We could find no sign of the Altaravan Trail however by following roughly its route we got onto the tracks. Go around 200m or so along the road and then strike up the steep bank NW. Head roughly N and you will reach one of the tracks. The ground as of 2008 is rough "clear felled". Head SW along the forest track (it's marked on the 1:50k map). After 700m turn right and go around 320m NE. There is relatively open land there and you can head up and NW. A forest track will appear from the left going in roughly the same direction. Take this and head up.

The summit has a telecoms or broadcasting installation on top of it and forestry. By my reckoning the summit is a hummock just beside the fencing of the installation. There is a minor summit 200m due east of there which appeared to be perhaps 1m lower but hey I only have a fairly ordinary GPS unit so can't be sure
The photo shows the summit from the aforesaid east top. There are also views of the Bessy Bell and its wind turbines. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/760/comment/3353/
