Knockannavea Hill Ramble/Explore
This little loop walk is largely in amongst the trees with little to no views. You do however have some views out over Dublin at the start of this little walk and for those interested in watching the ongoing quarrying process, well, I guess you too shall be pleased.
Not a bad view of Dublin.

In spite of it's lack of appeal this is an easy summit to visit and if one was in the area and so inclined it is a quick and easy walk too. The views of the quarry are at least something different and although absolutely terrible for the landscape and the environment, my inner boyhood was intrigued by the process that was ongoing the day we visited the area.
Well...it's a view....of sorts!

The summit is, well, less dramatic than other summits or even the local views of the quarry. However, it is rather easy to find and just off from the side of the track. I would imagine that in the future and once the forest is felled or thinned out this summit location may change as new or older features are rediscovered. Overall it is a short ramble but if are in the area please be aware some hunting does take place in the area.
The summit...
