This was my second post work attempt on this hill - I previously tried an approach from the east via the Slieve Felim Way, but because of impending darkness and windblown trees on the firebreak access to the bog I turned back. Reviewing the maps and aerial photos I picked this route. I parked my car to the side of the forest road (space for one car) at the open forest barrier. Indeed if this barrier is open you could drive to within 1.2km of the summit on a decent forest road but i think this is all private forestry so that might not be reasonable. The track is fairly self explanatory - as soon as you emerge from the forest you walk up a short dry bog track and then onto the bog itself. There are very good views of the surrounding Slieve Felims especially the southern Flank of Keeper Hill.
