An easy walk
Short Summary created by simon3, march-fixer, Dessie1, wicklore,  23 Jun 2013
Sorrel Hill is easily approached along the well defined track starting at the small car park at O04387 10862 A. The road leading up to the car park can be somewhat potholed on the higher section. Another word of caution – Ballysmuttan Bridge at O05650 14812 B has been closed for a lengthy period of time. (October 2010).(You will be glad to know that there is a shiny new bridge erected over the Liffey now!) This is a common route to the Black Hill/Sorrel Hill car park, and it is an awkward and lengthy detour to the car park if you first arrive at the closed bridge. Better to approach from Blessington/Lacken to the west along the N81.

It is just over 1km to the top of Sorrel Hill with an ascent of about 150 metres. The main track to the summit is muddy at times. [See track-1596 which uses an alternative and less boggy route that lies slightly to the east]. As you climb views emerge of the Blessington Lakes to the west, and the plains beyond. The bulk of the Mullaghcleevaun group of hills is directly to the south, while the Seefin – Seahan circuit of hills is to the north. Kippure holds court off to the east.

An alternative route to Sorrel Hill is from Ballynatona to the north. There's space to park a car at the entrance to the forest track at O055 138 C, which you can follow to within several hundred metres of the summit.

The summit of Sorrel Hill has a megalithic cairn. It is an easy walk, especially for children or beginners. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/280/comment/5040/
