Updated Summary:
A very long walk in the woods
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy  23 Sep 2022
This route involves a long walk through the woods - almost 12km return trip. Start at the entrance to Ballypatrick Forest at D19461 37059 starA where there is a large parking area. This is occasionally driveable but the forest road seems to be closed more often than not, so plan for a long walk. Follow the forest track south along a stream, which then turns SW under the A2. Proceed along this for about 500m where it meets a second forest track. Turn left for about 200m to point D19809 35533 starB, then turn right and continue SW for about 2.5km. The track deteriorates a bit and swings around to a SE direction, cuts up through the edge of the forest and eventually comes to an end on the open hillside about 500m from the highpoint at D18523 33647 starC. From then on it's a slog directly east through spongy heather, long grass and peat hags. The highpoint is difficult to define, and several spots vie for the title, all near to a fence that crosses the flattish summit. Allow 3 hours up and down.
