It was only a matter of time before someone added the gps route that shows the ridiculously short walk that leads from the nearby road up to this summit. While the walk itself is simple, the result is an amazing viewpoint of the coastline in the part of Donegal. Naturally the walk to this summit can be lengthened in all sorts of ways, one highly recommended extension would be the walk out to Horn Head itself. There are dramatic cliffs along this coastline which can be appreciated both from the car on the narrow winding road or from Croaghnamaddy or Horn Head.The trig pillar on Croaghnamaddy is becoming a work of art as rocks and stones are balancing precariously in a small tower on top of the trig pillar. This is one of the swiftest summits available to visit on MountainViews at present. It makes it ideal when time just isn't available, and the reward of fine views is remarkable.
