Short Summary created by jackill  25 May 2012
Park at the forestry entrance at W201 553 A, room for 5 cars. Walk up the track turning off to the south about 400 meters before it ends onto a rough machine path through clearfell trees to the summit , a high point in the bog next to an overturned tree stump.

2020 Update.
by Cobhclimber  21 Jul 2020
Forestry Entrance now is partially blocked by a trench/pit (2020). More parking further down on the approach road. Forest has grown up and the paths to the top are very overgrown and difficult to find.
. The top as per the map is completely overgrown but the still accessible look-out would seem to be at the same height. Done on a lovely sunny day. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/959/comment/20825/
