Nice, relatively simple Carn with fine panoramas
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy  8 Oct 2018
Car park can be found at 234 278 A. Take the track directly across the road that follows the Rocky River SE for about 1.5km. Rocky River is well named, for there are multiple crossing options. Turn west at 244 250 B and proceed up the gently rising slope for 1km. Ascent becomes steeper near the 300m mark. Terrain is long grass and heather. Well marked summit with cairn. Car to summit approx 1.5 hours. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/809/comment/5568/
