Access to the summit
There is a network of forest roads on the hill, with long straights, steeps slopes, hair-pin bends; the forest roads, with their sand and gravel surfaces, ascend to within 100 m of the summit. It is a very popular location for car rallying (official and unofficial).
There are some granite outcrops near the summit of Carrick, which have been established as a minor rock-climbing location. About 15 single-pitch routes have been recorded, at all grades up to E2.
