From Tomies Wood walking during 30 minutes before we reach from the north the lower slopes of Tomies Mountain. Travelling in a straight line toward the summit, but doing zigzag on steep terrain to make an easy ascent, we will pass megalithic remains of a hut site with views NE over Lough Leane.
The walk is on open moorland over wet ground, long grass & rough heather, but most times we try to follow sheep and deer tracks suitable for hiking boots and a moderate fitness level.
Our lunch break will be in the summit cairn at 735 metres over sea level (2,410 feet) with a great view of Killarney National Park and The MacGillycuddy’s Reeks. After, the way down by the east slopes of Tomies Mountain heading to Gortadirra and back to the wood.
