simon3: Track 1998 in area near Knocknacloghoge, Dublin/Wicklow (Ireland)
Pier gates circuit with Kanturk and Knocknacloghoge
Length: 18.6km, Creator time taken: 6h , Ascent: 958m,
Descent: 964m

Places: Start at O16970 07172, Knocknacloghoge, Robber\'s Pass Hill, end at Start
Logged as completed by 1

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.

NOTE: ALL information such as Ascent, Length and Creator time taken etc should be regarded as approximate. The creator's comments are opinions and may not be accurate or still correct.
Your time to complete will depend on your speed plus break time and your mode of transport. For walkers: Naismith's rule, an approximate though often inaccurate estimate, suggests a time of 5h 19m + time stopped for breaks
NOTE: It is up to you to ensure that your route is appropriate for you and your party to follow bearing in mind all factors such as safety, weather conditions, experience and access permission.

* Note: A GPS Height in the elevation profile is sourced from the device that recorded the track. An "SRTM" height is derived from a model of elevations for parts of the earth. More detail
