conormcbandon: Track 3061 in area near Donnell's Hill, Comeragh Mountains (Ireland)
An easy to reach summit but the trig pillar is painfully reached

Descent: 176m

Places: Start at S46121 13651, Donnell\'s Hill, end at Start
Logged as completed by 1

I parked the car in the forestry entrance as previously described. Following the forest road upwards I turned left once I reached the end of the field boundry on my left hand side. This leads to a communications mast. Turn right and then left after 200m up a single pedestrian track. This is looking at the true summit with cross from a secondary summit 100m to the southeast. The views are quite immense in all directions.

Crossing over the summit i 'battled' some heavy furze and general overgrowth to reach the trig pier on the downward northern slope.

Skirted around the left side of the lake and through a small gap in the forestry and back onto the proper forestry roads down to the car.

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 28m + 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.
