This is a very nice circular circuit which starts and ends in a pleasant carpark. The route heads westwards out along a disused railway track. Having "warmed up" the track switches north and back to pick up the normal way up to Muskeagh Hill. The wiews from the top are excellent. You then drop down the back of the hill and switch around to the east. There are lovely views here as you move from the open into dicedious woods. The route brings you down through a Coillte nuresry back to the old railway track. This will lead you right back to your car.
