Starting from the area of the "Pier Gates" (entrance to the Guinness estate near Lough Tay) follow the track shown to Cloghoge River. There are opportunities, not exploited on the occasion that this track was made for summiteering on Sleamaine or Ballinafunshoge - look carefully at precise directions for reaching these to avoid unnecessary difficulty.

Cross the river via the stepping stones there. Note. This is not possible following heavy rain. Then cross the Inchavore River at the point shown. This track goes unnecessarily near the river before the actual crossing. Note once again: this crossing is not possible following heavy rain and the same is true for later crossing the Inchavore.

Walk up to the fairly overgrown step above Lough Dan and then west towards the multiple tops of Kanturk. Note the way through the forest down a relatively untracked ride towards the Inchavore, then up Knocknacloghoge and onto a green road back via an allweather bridge.
