Trenches, Conifers and Cobwebs
Short Summary created by jackill,  7 Nov 2010
Park at the forest entrance on the Slieve Bloom way at N279 024 A. Walk around the first bend and climb a high peat, trackside bank where a forest ride will direct you to the summit.
There are some conifers and cobwebs to navigate just before the summit clearing.
Be careful of many hidden trenches on the way up. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/796/comment/5555/
