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.

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 3h 23m + 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.
