Lobawn has a flattish top. A series of ridges lead from it. The picture was taken from the broad, fairly flat ridge leading towards Donard to the west. The village of Donard is a convenient place to start from when walking in this area. The picture shows Sugarloaf (552m) in the mid-ground with Keadeen some 8k away on the skyline. Lobawn connects to Sugarloaf via a southerly ridge. This is to the left of the summit shown here. Between Keadeen and Sugarloaf lies the Glen of Imail, which includes an artillery range. As you can see from the foreground, Lobawn’s west ridge has a wet boggy surface. Unfortunately scramblers or dune-buggies have considerably damaged the surface of this ridge in places Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/222/comment/379/

Sweet spot all round

Located to the east of Donard in west Wicklow, it is nicely tucked away at the head of a number of lovely glens. Most walkers seem to approach from the south or west, whereas I think it is best approached from the north, either as part of a walk from Corriebracks or in its own right from the very scenic road leading into the glen and Lugglass Lower. This glen road in is reached either from the Hollywood or Wicklow Gap direction.

My reasoning is that the glen road in from the north is a visual treat on its own and brings you to a forest entrance. From here you may follow the forest track a good distance to the top. See track-1569 for directions. There is a little bit of rough ground from where you leave the track up to the edge of the forest.

While there is some erosion on the east-west track, there is no sign of damage by access from the north. It is a lovely view, from a rather flat top, should you be blessed with good weather.

There is a fair chance that you will not meet any other walkers on your travels up here. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/222/comment/6791/

The ridges up to Lobawn are beginning to succumb to the dreaded motorbike scramblers. It hasn't quite reached the levels of Slieve Maan yet, but I'm sure it's not far off. Picture shows the summit - anyone know what this pillar means? There's another one on the way over from Sugarloaf. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/222/comment/566/

Climbed this from Sugarloaf (which disappointingly isn't here on MV, one less to claim as bagged :-( ) There isn't a whole lot up there on the somewhat dull top, except the forlorn WD (War Department) Pillar awash in its watery peat. A beautiful Indian summer day, what a change from the washout summer days. Lovely views form up here, the mist over the midlands was punctuated by the summits peeping through of the nearby ranges of Blackstairs, etc.It's a gateway to the Northern ridge partly enclosing the Glen of Imaal. My 100th summit logged on MV... woohoo! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/222/comment/4095/

Save for Summer Days
by CaptainVertigo  1 Nov 2011
I recently completed a circuit of Church Mountain, Corriebracks, Lowbawn and Sugar Loaf. The route was about eleven miles in total and was executed on a warm wet afternoon in late October. The dank gloomy mushy Wicklow hills were rendered even more awful by the oppressive overbearing conifers. I feel perfectly safe on a dark open mountain but there is something ominous about high forest. I suspect it conjures up notions of wolves, ghouls et al. Anyway a couple of WARNINGS. You really need an up to date map as there are trees popping up all over the place. My old map seemed bereft of various groves that appeared in my path. Secondly do please look at some of the wonderful work of the Wicklow Mountain Path people. For example they are quite right to suggest that you keep to the high ground to the west of the "tree gap" as you make your way from Corriesbrack to Lobawn. See map,See http://www.pathsavers.org/Surveys/Lobawn%20Corriebracks.pdf I notice the David Herman indicates the same route in his slim but invaluable volume on the Wicklow hills Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/222/comment/6605/
