Keeper Hill Summit
Congratulations - you've reached the highest mountain in the Shannon Region at 694m! Views from here are spectacular of the lower lying farmland and forestry of the Slieve Felim area. The mountains around you are the Silvermines (479m) to the north/north-east, Knockane (411m) to the east, Mauhersliabh or Mother Mountain (543m) to the south east, and Cullaun (464m) to the south. The town of Nenagh is to the north and Limerick City is to the south west. You can also see Lough Derg in the distance and the River Shannon as it flows into Limerick and beyond.
An alternative route back to the Trailhead is to return to the Keeper Hill Junction and turn left instead of right. This follows the remainder of the Ballyhourigan Woods loop back to Trailhead (4.5km).
