Head off the Hollywood to Baltinglass road. There is space to park at the side of the entrance to the track by the road barrier. Follow the forest road keeping right at the first junction and left at the next. Continue on the forest road to the third junction. About 600m further on take the right-hand track off the forest road, on a bend in the road. This track leads straight up on to Church Mountain, trough the pine trees. Towards the top of the climb it opens out with no tree cover. At the top swing right (west, south-west) and make you way down the long down hill trek over heather covered terrain. NOTE: Unfortunately ... at the 400m contour line N942 013 there is a new fence that we had to cross at the fence corner before heading south-west down a grassy track. (Will need to find a new track down without restrictions. Looking at the satelite view, it should be possible to veer NNE as you reach the forest edge and take a left turn down the track). You will meet up with a forest road through Woodenboley. Continuing on this road brings you to the metalled road. Head on northwards which will bring you back to your vehicle. Generally a nice trek over good surfaces for the first half of the walk with a bit more challenging movement over the remainder until you reconnect with the forest road.
