Having read the very interesting comments from Wicklore and CSD, we decided to try completing a "circuit" of Ballycumber Hill. We started from the ford at T049 771 with the intention of returning on the track which connects to the Wicklow Way at T04501 77998 F. We rambled southwards along the Wicklow way, then veered south west to climb to point 397. True to recent form, the weather frustrated us - it started to rain and continued for the rest of the day!. Undaunted, we followed a reasonably good track to Ballycumber Hill. We stopped for a magical lunch in the forest, sheltered from the rain, we stretched out on the mossy forest floor listening to the slight swish of the wind in the trees and admiring a most beautiful clump of mushrooms growing from a fallen tree. Re-invigorated, we retraced our steps along the track to pick up the ridge running to point 425. As we approached the forest we saw what looked like a telecommunications mast but, further on found a notice re a planning application for a windfarm which suggests our mast was something to do with this. We continued on the track northwards and then picked up a "ride" eastwards through the forest. This proved quite difficult underfoot but did connect with our intended track back to the Wicklow Way. We followed this track only to find that the exit was blocked by a sturdy fence and much forest "debris" - branches etc. Having overcome the obstacles, we had a lovely stroll back along the wicklow way to our starting point. We left feeling that there was another little bit of research to be done to see if there is a more satisfactory finish to our circuit - perhaps by continuing further Northwards towards the Wicklow Way and, who knows, maybe when we return we will also see a windfarm there.!!
