Walk up because it is there!
by Harry Goodman  19 Nov 2012
(Note: this summit comment refers to the highpoint to the west called Crockaulin. A DGPS survey in March 2012 established Crocknasmug as the higher)

This is one of those hills which requires little or no effort to reach the top and where the parking place is by far a better viewpoint than that from the top of the hill. This said, I parked at a car park/viewpoint area at C6280342340 E crossed the road and went directly up a rough grassy track to the first top C6253942264 F and then down and up to the trig pillar at C6249042056 G. Rather than use the transmitter access road I opted to traverse down across the hillside back to the start. to be treated by a beautiful evening view across to a sunlit Magilligan Strand and Binevenagh making the visit worthwhile. If in the area drive up for a superb view from the car park and take in the top on a 20/25 minute stroll and 1km of walking. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/928/comment/6405/
