I headed for Seefingan directly from Seefin on what is a well worn track between each summit. The terrain on this stretch of the loop is particuraly soggy and it appears the track is getting wider. Navigation is not a problem between the two summits and 30mins should take you from seefin to seefingan. Linkback:

Did the Seefin-Seefingan-Corrig-Seehan circuit on Nov 23 rd and my advice to anybody thinking of doing this handly close-to-Dublin hike is don't - at least until we get a good period of hard frost to freeze over the swampy conditions. The saddle between Seefingan and Corrig is currently an absolute swamp and very difficult going. and the stretch between Seefin and Seefingan not a lot better Noticed that the previous time we did this circuit was Dec 31st 2005 when the conditions were fine after the frost had mazde the going much easier. I'd say avoid thie cirrcuit for at least a few weeks. Linkback:

Took in Seefingan from Seefin, as I guess most people do, judging by the track across the peat and snaking up the hill. Again as with Seefin there's a lovely cairn but unfortunately you can't peek in here! The cairn isn't the summit and I couldn't exactly be sure of the exact location of it as with many hills it's quite flattish on top, and everytime you go to the highest point, some other point seems higher! Anyway this mountain has the honour of being my 29th of Ireland's highest 100! From here we made for KIppure leaving the Kilbride circuit for a while, see Kippure's entry for the next part of the walk! Linkback:

A cairn worth seeing...
by YoungJohn  1 Apr 2011
Having traversed down Corrigs shoulder towards Seefingan through some quite boggy terrain and keeping well to the left of the granite blocks which mark the perimeter of the Kilbride Rifle Range, we started the ascent to the summit just as cloud covered the mountain. My two fellow hikers and I kept to the well worn track until we reached the summit.We then turned right still following the track to the huge cairn. Having been to Newgrange and marvelled there I was equally enthralled at this ancient site. While Seahan had some cairns and I have seen quite a few, this cairn was different in its setting and its magnitude. We were consulting our map and compass when a grey haired jogger appeared in the mist like a hermit monk of old to point out the way to Seefin in the cloud. We ventured south west as per Paddy Dillon and our very fit sage to be passed enroute to Seefin by two lads on motor bikes! That old saying came to mind... Every man to his own said the woman as she kissed the cow Linkback:
