Magnificent Views
by paddyhillsbagger  4 Mar 2012
Started the walk at the 'Welcome To Mayo' sign G376 164 A where there is just room to park on a side road. Followed part of a path beside the sign and information rock before turning left uphill. There are a number of sheep trails and tracks to follow, I only found them on the way down, which seems to suggest it's a popular climb despite the low usage on MountainViews. There is a little gully and stream ( used as the Sligo/Mayo border line) which I followed up to near the top where it levels off to give magnificent views of Lough Talt on one side, and the Nephins on the other.The trig itself is almost buried beneath the summit cairn. Give it about an hour up and down. Well worth a visit. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/753/comment/6705/

Picture: Knocknasliggaun across Lough Talt
A Lough Talt Circuit
by CaptainVertigo  25 Nov 2014
You may feel that I am ill qualified to comment at all on Knocknasliggaun since I have not yet been to its peak. In fact I have been up what is probably the best part of the mountain which hangs majestically over Lough Talt, one of County Mayo's hidden gems. The Lough can be found on the road from Ballina to Tobercurry, about mid way. I approached from the eastern tip of the lake and took the road that runs along the south of the lake to the base of the mountain. There's plenty of parking. I did a full circuit of the lake same years ago taking in part of Knocknasliggaun but the rest of the walk was at "ground level". I would highly recommend this area. A great combination of mountain and lake. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/753/comment/17748/
