Route to and from Crohane from parking in a farmyard at W042 851. Asked permission from a house at W042 853 and was directed to parking further up the valley beside a house with a friendly and aging labrador. From here head south on a good track through a mix of farmalnd initially.

This track goes far further than indicated on the map, although it deteriorates a bit as it rises, it is usable almost to spot height 458.

Took this route to Crohane on 2 July 2021. I was a little concerned because this is the only mountain in the "highest 100" list that is not included in the "Irish Peaks" book.

I parked off the road just along the lane way across from the art gallery, beside a large silver box that appears to have a power meter on its side.

I headed up the road and continued on the road as it became a dirt track. I came across the landowner who has a sheep enclosure along the track. He told me he pretty much owns all of Crohane. He has no problem with hillwalkers but suggests sticking to the road/track he has built. He told me the harrowing tale of a man that got lost and was only found by a sheep farmer years later. I researched this later and read the story of a Swedish hiker who got lost on Mangerton and was found 2 years later in the horse's glen.

I had clear weather and easily found my way up to the summit. There is a plaque at the summit that looks like a recent addition. There are a few remnants of some equipment up there, including a very large and heavy battery, that I couldn't even lift, never mind carry down off the mountain.

Fantastic views, particularly of Bennaunmore.

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, an approximate though often inaccurate estimate, suggests a time of 1h 42m + 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.
