An easy route up Mount Kennedy is to park just of the R765 on a side road and walk back to the R765, turn left then cross a gate on the right. This passes though part of the Roundwood golf course and it might be best to reserve this route for less busy times. Follow the track into the woods and take a short cut on the left about 600m from the start to reach a forest road. Turn left here and follow the road for about 200m (ignoring a branch on the left to recent clear felling) to a fork. Turn left at the fork and the path curves northwards and then eastwards again to meet a wall at the edge of the forest. Turn right here and follow the forest boundary to the summit. The later part of this follows a ride between two forest blocks but beware of barb wire on the ground.
