A pleasant walk.
Short Summary created by Harry Goodman,  5 Nov 2011
Start car park C584 126 A. Walk NE and turn left onto the Slaghtmanus Rd. At C583 129 B go right up forest track. At C583 137 C keep to the main track left across a small bridge. Where 4 tracks meet C583 140 D keep right and go up the hillside. At reference point C585 142 E This grid reference in the text is shown as point E on the Detail Map above'>C585142 E there are alternative routes to the top. Route 1: Veer left and go due N along the main track for about 1k to C586 150 F. Turn right and follow the track for 400m up to a junction C589 152 G. Turn left and follow track up to trig. pillar and top. Route 2: From C585 142 E continue straight ahead on a good track which then becomes a long, grassy, spongy, ride for some 500m, before once again becoming a forest track which is followed up to the trig pillar and top. The high point lies a few metres to the left (W) of the pillar. In very wet weather the best option is to follow Route 1. Return by way of ascent or combine both routes for a little variety. From the top the views N to Inishowen and then around E to Binevanagh and S to Benbradagh and the main Sperrin Ridge make the walk up well worthwhile.
