Picture: The new pathway
New Pathway around the Summit
by TommyMc 10 Nov 2018
A new pathway around the summit has been installed over the summer.

Walkers are now met with a locked gate within circa 50 yards of the masts and trig point, but a new and quite attractive pathway to the left leads around the perimeter of the summit area and leads to another, unlocked, gate which gives access to the summit proper.

Somewhat bizarrely, the visitor is still greeted with a misleading "No unauthorised persons beyond this point" sign at the gate at the foot of the access road. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/974/comment/20203/

No escape from the modern world
by csd 9 May 2010
Despite its modest elevation, Corn Hill has one of the largest TV/telecommunications installations adorning its summit I've seen on this island. The forestry is beginning to encroach on the view from the top, and the constant drone of the air conditoners in the service building take away from the attraction of this summit, but at least it's very easily gained! The presence of such a large telecomms installation means that I'm typing this as I sit beside the summit cairn, with a good 3G signal to speed the upload of the photo I've just taken! Is this MV's first 'live on the scene' comment? :) Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/974/comment/4697/

Picture: The mast. Some say its ugly, to me its like a modern art instillation at the summit.
Well worth the walk - even from the wrong direction
by tomasocarthaigh 1 May 2014
I came up the wrong face, over fields and bog not on paths, to spite my best efforts to follow the "maer ditch" by kind permission of a local landowner. It was worth it though, the views that end are spectacular.

Coming down the correct path, and walking to Edenmore via Mallons Cross, Aughadowery Cross was a walk in itself.

As a writer - according to myself, I wrote these few words after: http://www.writingsinrhyme.com/index.php/cairn-hill-stanzas-from-the-summit/ Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/974/comment/16048/

murphysw on Corn Hill
by murphysw 15 Sep 2008
I climbed this the same day as Mullaghmeen in Westmeath and Slieve na Caillagh in Meath thus bagging three county high points in the one day. It was away back in 2005 so dont remember much other than that it was maybe the easist high point of the lot. There is only one room for a car to park at the bottom of the tv road. The views are good but not 360 degrees owing to the tv mast and the accompanying clump of trees at the top Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/974/comment/3321/
