Having it Largan
by madfrankie  8 Jul 2019
In an effort to avoid the unpleasant tree-stuff described previously, I decided to make an alternative approach. At the western end of Lough Talt I took a minor road at G38776815942 A that skirts the eastern side of the hill. After 2 kms I turned left at a T-junction. The road (now The Sligo Way) is an unsurfaced track, and I parked at the entrance to forestry at G4083317900 B. A pallet-gate to the left of the forest entrance gave (clumsy) access to the open hillside.
The gradient soon steepens, and I continued up grassy slopes to a vague grassy track running in a SW direction. I followed this SW till the summit area loomed into view to my right, Gaining the broad summit ridge and crossing a fence I continued through an area of sphagnum-covered peat hags to the featureless summit. There are wide views, though on this muggy overcast day, it was all a bit unremarkable. What was noteworthy was how uninhabited the valley to the east was - I could only discern two dwellings in an area of many square miles.
I made my way back via the same route for a round trip of 1hour 45 minutes, and a distance of 4.64 kilometers. Baggers only. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/770/comment/20576/

A nice day with some unexpected sunshine!
by ColinCallanan  13 Feb 2015
When an unexpected sunny spell came to visit us in south Sligo, I decided to drive out to Lough Talt to tackle this interesting little hill. I mostly followed the track by gerrym, parking near a gate entrance at the start of his track. The walk was very pleasant, dry and the sun illuminated the hills leading up to Knocknasliggaun to the South West. With cloud coming in from the north, views from the summit were not as good as expected. But the lovely fresh air, and the views across to Lough Talt to the south and also Meenamaddo and Sruffaungarve to my NNE more than made up for the lack of visibility elsewhere. When cloud lifted, I had a nice view of Nephin.

I made the mistake of following gerrym's track right down into the inviting green forest at G3830017625 J. This started very nice but like Gerry warned, the going gets quite tough, so you'll be almost crawling through some of this forest. I'll do this route soon again and upload a track using Paddy's route near G382 178 K to complete the circuit. This will require going around the edge of the forest is a westerly direction, until you veer a little south towards the road. The walk back along the road back to the car is surprisingly pleasant.

Tough going
by paddyhillsbagger  4 Mar 2012
Parked a little up the road from sandman's starting point at a large forestry entrance. Followed the paths and made my way uphill to the North of the forest edge which brought me out on open moorland near spot height 349 G382 178 K. Made my way across boggy and tussocky ground to an empty unmarked summit of peat hags. Wonderful views of surrounding country and mountain ranges. Returned via sandman's route but didn't find forest trail and cut through trees which was pretty unpleasant. A lot of effort for a dull top with a nice view. Allow about an hour and a half with some tough going. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/770/comment/6706/
