Walk from Ballinaclash
by mickhanney  29 Sep 2018
Cushbawn is also reachable as a walk (or run) from Ballinaclash, perhaps en route to Brook Lodge Macreddin. Park at Ballinaclash and take road that goes steeply uphill at Phelans pub. Stay on this road for a few kilometres. You pass one forest entrance on the left - don't take it. The forest entrance you want is the 2nd one on fhe left, which you encounter after the tarmac road runs out and becomes a rougher quality track. Follow the fire road from the yellow barrier for c. 2 kilometers steadily upwards. At this stage any left turn up through the forest breaks will bring you onto the track that loops around Cushbawn. You might see some marking tape hanging form the trees where a local has marked out a direct line to the Cushbawn track. This short section is quite rough having been left over from previous forest clearing. Once you reach the track through the trees its a left turn then a right turn directly up to Cushbawn summit. Retreat back to Ballinaclash the same way or carry on down past golf club to Brook Lodge for post walk refreshment. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/840/comment/20073/
