New Comment: Grassy walk to summit
by Fergalh  Mon 23 Nov
Heading North East from Postbridge on the B3212 there is a small parking place on the left. Here i parked and did a big Circuit with 13 Hills and Tors. Head along track for a while and than veer off North East for high point at edge of forest and marked by a stone pillar. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/B2877/comment/21528/
