Peter Walker: Track 3886 in area near Knockboha, North Mayo (Ireland)
Length: 2.9km, Creator time taken: 32m48s, Ascent: 27m, Descent: 31m
Places:Start at G14320 37741, Knockboha, end at Start Logged as completed by 1
The obvious (on the map) track leading to Knockboha from the south is reasonably obvious on the ground, but I think the days of it potentially succumbing to a 4x4 attack are consigned to history, unless you have a spare example of such a vehicle equipped with a winch (oh, and bolt cutters to deal with the substantial metal barrier encountered) that you're prepared to sacrifice to clear the way for your actual transport. Yes, plenty of the route is the most straightforward track imaginable, but there's a fair amount of jungle thrashing thrown in to keep you honest. Once you emerge from the forest the track winds over open heathland before a lesser branch turns left to the conspicuous summit.

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, a rough and often inaccurate estimate, suggests a time of 0h 38m + 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.
