Picture: The exciting summit of Knocknamuck
 
Zero charm, infinite views
Short Summary created by wicklore,  25 Jul 2010
Knocknamuck is not a pretty summit with several aerials, guy wires, and a concrete hut complete with security camera at the summit. It can be reached via the brief access track starting at S31527 54926 A. Other approaches are not advised due to extensive electric fencing in the fields surrounding the summit.

What Knocknamuck lacks in charm it more than makes up for in the expansive views it offers. It is possible to see the Comeraghs, the Galtees, the Knockmealdowns, Slievenamon, the Shannon Hills, the Slieve Blooms, the Wicklow Mountains, the Blackstairs Mountains and some of the South Midlands hills. These views make the detour to Knocknamuck worthwhile. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/912/comment/5671/

Knocknamucks summit is reached via 250 meters of access track (S31527 54926 A is the start point) for some television deflectors.The summit area is decorated by a green agricultural trailer sporting two masts set in a block of concrete.Not the most inspiring I agree but look south to Slievenamon from here, theres always something in a mountainview to please.

Summit of the Slieveardagh Hills
by Wilderness  21 May 2018
If you fancy a longer walk you can start at the car park just outside Grange at S309566 B. From here I walked clockwise round the Crag Forest Loop until I reached the Wellington Monument. I then joined the country road which led me south towards Knocknamuck. There are a number of wind turbines scattered at the top along with some small transmitters. I highly recommend you start this walk from the Grange car park as the forest was beautiful and full of wildlife ; the Wellington Monument is definitely worth a visit too.

Tipp Mt Haven
by eamonoc  18 Sep 2013
Easily ascended Knocknamuck from point (Point A) S31527 54926 A via good path, it took 9mins 30seconds from car to car. Not much to say except that the views in all directions were fantastic, directly south Slievenamon, the Comeraghs, to the west the Devils bit and all its attendant sattelites, southwest the Galtees and the Knockmealdown Mts, Tipperary is a Mt Haven, to the east the Blackstairs.
