A sure and direct way to the top.
Short Summary created by Harry Goodman,  20 Aug 2013
Park off road at B8893202045 A. Walk NE along the road for about 100 metres to a gate on the left. Cross over and follow a fence, on the right side of the field, going steeply uphill and crossing over another fence on the way up.. At B8866602379 B, where the fence turns sharply right, if conditions are clear, note a large prominent dome shaped raised ridge to the NW. The top of the hill lies on this 1.2km to along what is at first a relatively flat broad ridge of marshy ground but then rises more steeply over peat hags and some rocks to reach the top. The high point B8787903263 C lies amid a mixture of peat and rock with a small pond nearby. Croaghleheen is a twin topped hill with the second but lower top due N from the summit. Return by way of ascent, a 3.8km round trip. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/859/comment/5618/
