A short but fun trip to the top
by thomas_g  9 Feb 2012
Park at W4225197135 F (room for 6 cars). Head straight up the hill, ignoring the walking trail markers. At the T junction at W4212896588 G, enter the woods behind the information board, there is a visible trail. Now climb up the stream bed, which is steep in spots and could be very wet after lots of rain. When you emerge on the forest track at the top, turn left and then next right, you are following the red marked trail in reverse now.
Still following the marked trail. after taking a right you'll come to a cross of forest tracks, the summit is straight on, but if you want to head for the cross, turn left here (sorry no grid ref) and at W4304095272 H enter the woods, you'll see from the picture below that the track that was once there is now impassible (I passed it twice even with a GPS ref). You'll need to parallel the track through the woods and soon the cross will come into view. It's a worthwhile detour, the views are pretty decent.
Having back tracked to the summit, I started a very windy descent along the marked track so I entered the woods again at W4228495688 I following a rough path down through the trees to another forest track at W4215995934 J, cross straight across and before long you'll be back at the top of the stream bed from earlier. I followed the blue marked trail back to the car, but the more adventurous could go back down the stream bed. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/852/comment/6677/
