Start off from just north of Cahirr follow Tipperary heritage way into forest head north west towards Slieveanard mindful of the forest paths which don't entirely correspond to the OSI map. above tree line navigation is simpler, although low lying cloud may make it difficult to make out navigational references. Once Sturrakeen is reach navigation is simple all the way to the top of Galtymore from Galtymore take a SWW bearing until you find the wall which be used to navigate 'til Lyracappul then descend the SW ridge to Knockaterrif. Temple hill to the west is difficult to miss however don't follow this track as a navigational guide nor should you rely on the trees to be located as shown in the OSI the Paradise hill loop in the direction of Paradise hill will bring you to a track leading to the road.
