Uninspiring hill accessed via forest tracks.
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy  12 Feb 2024
A fairly straightforward climb mostly up forest tracks. There is parking for several cars at a Coillte forest entrance at R90975 65420 starA. Follow the winding trail up for about 2km, barely gaining any height, passing multiple small streams. At R92274 65545 starB, go right at a fork and follow this track as it skirts the south of the top. Pass a small, abandoned quarry on left and just past this watch for a rough forest ride ascending towards the top at around R92767 65463 starC. Follow this up to the highpoint, marked by a pile of rocks with a pole in the centre. Return by same route. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/815/comment/5574/

Commaun Beg is never going to feature in anyone's Top Ten Irish Mountains. Probably not even in their top five hundred. Partly this is because it doesn't present much of a profile as you approach it, but also because it's tree-shrouded and lacking in obvious features.
Our approach was via a waterlogged lane to the NW (we got permission to park at a house at R921664 starD), and possibly not the best way up. The lane deteriorated into a track as it entered the trees, but on arrival at a crossroads, the edge of forestry ascending uphill clearly marked the way.
The summit area is an acre-sized clearing amidst the forestry, the top marked by a rotting stick.
It is a hill with an aura of obscurity and neglect. No surprise that only one Mountainviewer had logged it before us. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/815/comment/6262/
