Set out to reach the summit of Knocklettercuss using the Bangor Trail out of Bangor. The trail begins at F 86569 22670 A. Parking available beside the GAA pitches. At F 86610 20820 B I left the trail and started up the heather slopes. At sharp climb from 140m to 340m at F 87106 20524 C, but then fairly flat up to the summit at F 87595 19817 D. Good views to south of Nephin Beg range, and out to west of Achill. I returned back using same route. About 7.3km in total, 2 1/4 hours. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/878/comment/3780/
