To get here you can start from a carpark on the R251 road, the route follows a popular and accessible tourist path, crossing a slightly a land before the route starts climbing proper on steep shining quartzite scree with an ascent of approx 525m from the carpark to the summit. From here relax and enjoy the spectacular views before you return along the same path to the car park or like most people you can take the exposed ridge walk known as ‘One Mans Pass’, which requires care if windy, to the twin summit known as Mackoght.

Once you get here you can enjoy the views amazing...even on cloudy days. It will take an hour to get down, few falls along the way might happen, so make sure to have your walking poles!
