I had previously climbed the two northern tops of the horseshoe, Drung Hill and Beenmore and earlier this year, I climbed Colly and the Eastern tops so that left me with the central 600m tops to finish. The obvious and popular routes are from the East, for very good reasons - the views! However, drawing a gentle curve to link the four remaining 600m tops suggests a start from the West - and besides, I was curious!
There is very limited parking around the start though a kind farmer let me park in a gateway near his house. The advantage of starting from this side is the very easy track into the valley and the zig zag track up the side of Toormoyle that helps get to the 600m contour quite easily. The going across the tops is straightforward though boggy in parts. In descending from Been Hill, another track is met around the 400m mark.
A good day out in a remote and beautiful part of Kerry...incidentally, I had no mobile phone coverage for the whole day, until I regained the main road near Kells- a mixed blessing!

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 4h 8m + 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.
