Kimego forest is an official Coilte forest recreation area tucked away on the North side of the Iveragh penininsula at V45388 82721 starA but in truth it is much more an area of felled trees and stacked logs. It's possible to do a short 3.5 kilometre loop around this forest however, I used this trail to also access Castlequin Hill. This involved going uphill through an area of felled tress for about 200 metres before accessing the hill proper. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/886/comment/20548/
