New access track on Crockkinnagoe
by three5four0  16 May 2010
Followed BogRunners route on the ascent of Crockkinnagoe to its trig point and now telecommunications mast. There is now a service track for the mast which descends to the old farm buildings at H12190 73307 A (gate), where you continue along its access track to join the main track at H12698 73662 B, turning right and rejoining your outward route soon after. This gives a round trip of approx 7.75 km Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/885/comment/4741/
