Bunsen7: Track 3608 in area near Lugnagun, Dublin/Wicklow (Ireland)
Lugnagun from Lacken Forest

Descent: 146m

Places: Start at O00282 12328, Lugnagun, end at Start

A track for time poor local hill baggers.
I parked to the side of the western entrance to Lacken Wood where the standard black/yellow barrier bars vehicular access, O 00277 12325. I initially floundered when seeking a route to the summit through a firebreak in the forest which was heavily overgrown with gorse, so I continued on the forest path, but after the switchback I noticed a distinct path heading north east and this led me to the stile very close to the summit. I came down via the same very easy and direct path which I then found continued across the forest tracks I had ascended. I missed it initially on my ascent as I had been looking south west to the lake, but it is at O 00932 12012.
The path to the stile is marked as a white line on the EastWest map. The stile appears to be at the location of the mound marked on the EastWest map, though this is covered over.
A very easy bag - I wil return on a day with better views.
