Did this walk in March 2014. Start at crossroads by R572. Climb up minor road, then after circa 1.5 km, veer right following the Béara Way and leave it as you reach the 190/200m contour and keep walking uphill. Try to stick more or less to the 350m contour -I almost reached 400m, which led me to some steep parts, with a few crags and some wet patches I had to avoid. Turn around the mountain, veering NNE towards Coomarkane Lake. This route may be a bit long and not always easy-going, but it enables you to admire Hungry Hill's E cliffs falling into Coomarkane Lake, then into Coomadayallig Lake as you gain height again on the way to Derryclancy. This first top is rather flattish, but offers great views, to Eskatariff and Lackabane to the NW, Hungry Hill to the SW and Bantry Bay to the S. The ascent of Hungry Hill is not really difficult from this side. Take the time, as I did, to walk around the summit area, as the views from the S top over Bantry Bay are amazing. Though it looked alright on the OS map, the descent was rather tough, on steep, slippery ground, with some streams merging beneath some rocky outcrops, forcing me to make quite a few detours. Not a place to be in poor visibility !! There is probably an easier way down. Once the Coomnagapple Glen is reached, it is an easy stroll down the track, then down the road. Not the easiest way to climb Hungry Hill, but this route allows you to admire it from all sides.
