A track that's very easy to follow, with good parking, 3 highest hundred summits for less than 900m of ascent, but does use the road at the start/end. Disappointed by the amount of litter along the road, though I noticed some council workers plucking a few bits from the parking area on the turn down to Spelga Dam. You'll get up Muck from the west pretty quickly, though it appears fairly steep to begin with. It's akin to the pull up Donard from the west. This track could easily be extended to include spurs to Ott, Butter or Doan Mtn. Straightforward return using waymarked trail along the small Fofanny reservoir.
