Slieve Snaght (Sliabh Sneachta in Irish, meaning "Snow Mountain") is the second highest mountain in Donegal and the 142nd highest in Ireland.

To ascend this mountain, park in the small slipway car park on the R254 at Irish Grid Reference B92918 12363 (see point marked on the map) with room for 5-6 cars.

Walk northeast along the road for 1km, cross the fence to your left and follow the Sruhancrolee stream northwest over marshy ground before ascending steeply next to a small waterfall.

The slope is less steep as you cross a boggy kilometre west the small summit cairn of Crockfadda. Move on to Crockfadda NE then look for a steep gully rising the side of Slieve Snaght to the east. Climb the gully to the more gently sloping summit.
