Pleasant forest track stroll
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy, jackill, simon3  7 Nov 2022
Start from the forest entrance at W66873 95524 starA and follow the track, ignore the first right after a hundred meters or so and keep on due south . This track then begins to head north east, ignore the next right and take the right that follows it to find the fenced off summit area crowned by 3 masts. The actual highpoint is in a small clearing just beyond the most NE mast. It is a slightly raised area and next to it are the remains of what is possibly a small megalithic structure.
