From Pettigo take the R233 to Lough Derg but almost immediately turn right, sign-posted 'Lettercran'. Stay on this road for around 4km then take the left hand fork in the road. Follow this road for around 3-4km and park in one of the forestry entrances where possible. Now on foot, head back down the way you came and you will come across a road with grass growing in the middle, on the right hand side. Take this and head uphill for about 1km, passing a house on your left and several abandoned farmsteads. Pass through a gate and an old quarry. You should now see the river running out of Seafin Lough near the peak of Crockkinnagoe. Turn around here for views back across west Tyrone and Lough Erne.
From here you need to strike out to the left (roughly south-west) towards the trig point, now clearly visible. The going is very wet and soft and walking poles would be helpful here. I ran across this top in fell running shoes, fine for grip but feet were soaking wet.
It is all worth it though, as when you get to the top the views are breath-taking, especially on a summer evening. To the south you see most of Lower Lough Erne and the surrounding area, to the west you have immediately in front of you Lough Derg and beyond that Donegal Bay, Slieve League and down to Ben Bulben. To the north you can make out Muckish and perhaps Errigal if you are luckier than me with the cloud cover. To the north east Bessy Bell is clearly visible as are the some of the more distant Sperrins. Down-hill is a breeze. Linkback:
