Track Rating ..
[RWD version 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.
