New Comment: A mixed bag

Kimego forest is an official Coilte forest recreation area tucked away on the North side of the Iveragh penininsula at V45388 82721 A 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/
