ColinCallanan: Track 3487 in area near Knocknashee, Ox Mountains (Ireland)
A nice Sunday hillwalk with lovely views of the Ox mountain valley
Length: 2.3km, Creator time taken: 1h 4m, Ascent: 168m,
Descent: 163m

Places: Start at G55562 19969, Knocknashee, end at Start
Logged as completed by 1

This was on a nice Sunny day in midsummer, and the views were lovely across the plains to the S, E and N. West there was plenty of cloud hanging over the Ox mountains, limiting views beyond.
Find easy parking in the car-park for Gilligans world. Ferom there, head south and find an open tractor dirt track which gives you a nice easy start and brings you a good way up the hill. Some barbed wire fences are on this route, but they are easily crossed. However, may be quite ackward with smaller adults or children.
On the way down, the track goes a bit further east to take in stunning views out to Knocknarea, and we also find some better ground. However, getting back west to the original track required a couple of ackward barbed-wire fence hopping.
