A nice forest trail takes you up
by Pepe  12 Apr 2019
Various scraps of metal litter the summit area: an old mast stay, plus various other bits and pieces. Perhaps they're the remnants of comms masts or maybe an old military watch station from back in the day. Knochchree is a pleasant walk up a forest trail if you have time - and energy - left on your way out of the Mournes Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/952/comment/20486/
