Mangerton offers a difficult mountain loop trail around a classic corrie lake with spectacular views of Killarney, the Reeks and the Paps. A steep ascent along the mountain track leads to the Devils Punchbowl , an oval shaped lake nestled in the middle of the mountain. This is followed by a tough but spectacular trek to the summit to re join the track on the other side of the Punchbowl.
Parking is available on the roadside, however care must be taken not to block the entrance of private residents.
