Colin from United Kingdom

Walked this from Strandhill and found this a most enjoyable evening walk with good views. It is a stiff ascent from Strandhill initially on a good gravel path before ascending on wooden step sleepers through forestry and the summit afforded views in all directions. Descended east to Grange North before following lanes back via Drinaghan. I did include the Killaspugbrone Loop Walk afterwards making it a full evening walk. Time taken to do whole walk was 3 hours 10 minutes at a moderate to quick pace.
