A fairly straightforward route most of the way, involving a direct walk of almost 3km along a forest track before a 200m trudge up a sort-of trail that is muddy and littered with detritus from nearby clear fell. Parking for 2/3 cars at a forest entrance to the north.The forest track is pretty straight in a SSE direction for about 2.5km then curves sharply back to NE for about 100m. At this point watch for a narrow trail up over a bank on the left – a bit of a scramble – which will take you on to a rough area of long grass, muddy patches, heather and sedge grass, all of it littered with bits of felled trees.There is a faint track to be found through this in a NE direction for about 200m to the high point, which is unmarked except for a small sawn off stump.Good views across valley of the adjacent Knockfune with Keeper Hill directly behind it. Allow about 1 hour 15 minutes return trip.
