Kids will love this one. An easy(ish) walk, a visitors book and a geocache.

Plenty parking at R70274 16868 B. The brown Castlegale Hillfort sign will guide you. After passing through the barrier watch out for a loopwalk post on the right with red, blue and purple arrows, approx 130m. I passed it out and only noticed it when I turned back. You are now following the loop walk arrows in reverse! Head uphill through the trees for 150m to the next post where the signed path swings left to ascend through the forestry beside a mossy bank. Follow the posts and you will come to a stile on the right at the highest point of the walk. Once over the stile follow the worn path 200m to the little trig point. Watch out for slippery tree roots on descent. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/825/comment/15074/
