The route starts from a place where you can park one car as shown. This is also the way down off the uplands and appears to be a track leading to old Land Commiission turf cutting. There are other places to park more cars if you don't mind following the route of the track onto forest roads where there's a few places.
The 1:50k is reasonably accurate as to forest roads. Wend your way up on the forest road. You will note that the forest roads are superwide and superflat. This is turbine blade moving country.

The spread of windfarms. Coomagearlahy and the route on the right.


From the top there is a choice of view: towards the south and the windfarms or to the north and a range of wild scenery.
Kenmare as you haven't seen it before.

Coomagearlahy West is nothing to get excited about. The route to it and back is over very rough heather.
Stoompa to the left with the small ex-volcano of Bennaunmore to the right of it.
Briefly you pass this small lake.
There is an odd sight
C for Coomagearlahy perhaps: forestry as of August 2019 on way to Knockbwee


There is a great view of the Paps from the top of Knockbwee.
The magnificent Paps.
The final descent uses reasonably intact roads intended to serve the turf cutting. There was one small patch in 2019 that was being actively cut.
