Fine views across the plains of Cork
Short Summary created by jackill  2 Sep 2014
From the Forest entrance at W24675 83393 A,where there is room to park 8-10 cars, follow the excellent roadway constructed for the windfarm to W24800 84080 B and then turn right down a bank onto an older track uphill, through a green gate, out to the turf cuttings. Hop the fence (look out for the fallen five stones that make up the Ballyvouskill stone circle) and cross 500 boggy meters before a slight 30 meter ascent to the cairn at the summit area.
