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 H. 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 I 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.
