“Easy walk to get 360 view of lake & coast”
Breathtaking views of Caragh Lake, as well as Cromane, Rossbeigh and Inch in the distance, and on a windy day, it’s the best possible spot to blow away those cobwebs! If you’re walking with children, there’s also a Geocache hidden at the top – the...more

I was so glad to finish this walk. Tough going but the views were spectacular. Very high in some places. But so picturesque. Like something out of Lord of the Rings. Proper walking gear recommended as it is very wet and marshy in some places.

The hiking trail itself is unremarkable, blue stone gravel with little to see around as you walk up the hill. But the view is stunning. If you have kids and you don't feel like doing the walk, drive up to the top and it's a...More

The mountain spur is short and rewarding with 360° views that include the lake and it's small islands; Seefin mountain stands sentry to the rear of the lake with the Magillycuddy Reeks, Dingle Bay and the Atlantic ocean visible behind. Short walk - excellently maintained...More
