From the summit the distinctive heart-shaped Lough Ouler is visible on the eastern side of the mountain.

  • Great hike with challenging climb to the summit. Lovely views on Lough Ouler
  • Any time of year I love the walk up. On a clear day it's wonderful. On a cloudy day the shadows add a mystic to the area. But on a wet or windy day, yes you can get drowned, but there is a magic feel to the views
