A route over the three hills immediately east of the Healy Pass; Knockowen, Cushnaficulla and Knockeirky.

The route starts at a very handy height of 280m, climbs along the ridge to Knockowen and then drops to the two further hills, before contouring south of both Knockowen and Cushnaficulla on the return. Contouring was a bit tricky, as the south faces of these hills are a mass of rock slabs, angled at around 45 degrees and facing roughly south. Some have slipped more than others, making route finding awkward. Going past Knockowen in particular, was difficult until I found a wide grassy ledge at a height of around 530m which took me past the worst of the slabs to meet my upwards track.

The terrain in this area is very complex and the rough and irregular nature of the ground makes keeping on course a challenge. A lot of micro route finding decisions have to be made continually - this track represents the ones I made on this particular day - it may well be that anyone following it will make completely different choices.

Note: ALL information such as Ascent, Length and Creator time taken etc should be regarded as approximate. The creator's comments are opinions and may not be accurate or still correct.
Your time to complete will depend on your speed plus break time and your mode of transport. For walkers: Naismith's rule, a rough and often inaccurate estimate, suggests a time of 3h 30m + time stopped for breaks
Note: It is up to you to ensure that your route is appropriate for you and your party to follow bearing in mind all factors such as safety, weather conditions, experience and access permission.
