This is an easy walk out and back along a forest track starting at R52403 89504 starB. This track joins with a tarred road that leads to the summit. The views at the top are restricted as the mountain is planted with trees. The fact that my best picture is of the actual large mast at the top of the hill says it all. Hard to believe this is the second highest point in Clare. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/838/comment/20099/
