Colin Murphy: Track 4833 in area near Seefin, Boggeragh Mountains (Ireland)
Seefin - Seefin East Top
Length: 7.1km, Creator time taken: 1h50m, Ascent: 375m,
Descent: 377m

Places: Start at W3732487036, Seefin, Seefin East Top, end at Start
Logged as completed by 1

This track takes in Seefin and Seefin East Top and will take roughly 1 hour 45 minutes hours to compete. There is ample parking at start point, but the last 1km to reach it is along a rough road. Heading first for Seefin, I encountered a barbed-wire topped gate, which I was luckily able to surmount.
On leaving the main track towards the summit, it is relatively easy to follow a grassy, occasionally boggy trail through the heather. This eventually became single file. Summit is marked by telecom masts, a couple of cairns and a highpoint atop a large grassy knoll.
Partially retraced my steps, but a track branching off just after the barbed gate saves some walking as it links up with track to the East Top. I followed this for about 300m, turned sharply right (west) following another track that curved around the hill. When this ran out I began to ascend through the mature trees, which was fine at first, but eventually encountered many fallen trees and had to make multiple detours.
Expect lots of this...
Eventually located a forest ride that took me most of the way up, but had to battle through a little more forest to reach the highpoint, which is in a small clearing.
Summit area
Found a different forest ride about 70m north of summit area and followed this straight down with just one minor detour, which took me back to track about 120m north of the track’s end point. This would have been a better option for my ascent, even though it requires clambering over a slippery, high bank from the forest track. Seefin East Top will not be in anyone’s top ten hills, or top 100 for that matter.

NOTE: ALL information such as Ascent, Length and Creator time taken etc should be regarded as approximate. The creator's comments are opinions and may not be accurate or still correct.
Your time to complete will depend on your speed plus break time and your mode of transport. For walkers: Naismith's rule, an approximate though often inaccurate estimate, suggests a time of 2h 2m + time stopped for breaks
NOTE: It is up to you to ensure that your route is appropriate for you and your party to follow bearing in mind all factors such as safety, weather conditions, experience and access permission.
