Just a short hop, skip and a jump to the summit. This is a very short but enjoyable walk to the summit of a wonderful viewing point overlooking Blessington Lakes.

Park at the gap car-park, where there is ample parking available. Head straight across the road and follow the track N, all the way to the summit. The track can be a bit soggy in parts. Be aware that in poor visibility conditions, the track may not be that obvious when trying to descend, so use you compass or GPS carefully.

There is reasonably good shelter at the summit. This walk could be extended by heading W to Lugnagun and descending through Carrig Wood which would turn it into a linear walk or heading over to Black Hill and capturing both summits. (See also Walk No. 133 for details on Black Hill).
