This area is heavily forested and consequently has a good supply of forest access roads. There are also reasonable pedestrian passages making access to the summits easy. I parked at a forest entrance. The summit cairn of Corran is easily accessed from the communications masts. I was unable to find the Trig as marked on the OS map, has anyone found it or was obliterated in construction, maybe it was never there?
The Wizards hat of Seefin was again easily reached and continued on the path towards Knocknaskagh.
Leaving the defined path and onto a forest ride I encountered the one and only issue of the track, a flooded section approximately 100m long. It was possible to avoid this by moving into the forestry but this wasnt so easy to move through either.
I followed the tracks as shown to knocknaskagh and its north top which was the highlight of the route with the best views. Moving westward, the forest road proper was picked back up again and I returned to the car.
