Park at S112081 and walk north along the road for about 170m. Take a track on the left and pass through a gate, after which take the track on the left (ignore the track straight on which goes towards forestry). Follow this tarck along the north-east flank of Knockmeal as heads NW to the col between Knockmeal and Cohan West. At the col the track truns right but cross the new fence on your left and walk about 300m to the col and pick up a track following a drainage ditch northwards to the summit of Crohan West. From the summit retrace your steps to the col and contine from the col following the ditch to the summit of Knockmeal. From Knockmeal walk SW to the col between Knockmeal and Knocknafallia then follow a drainage ditch west towards Knocknagnauv. From the summit of Knocknagnauv walk SE to Knocknafallia and then continue eastwards to the obvious burial cairn where it is necessary to descend steeply NE back to the col between Knocknafallia and Knockmeal. From the col take the middle track back to the car.
