A gps route might appear nearly pointless considering that you are following a boardwalk and well laid track throughout. However this gps route will allow you to study the walk - length, time, where it is slow going, where you can speed up etc. Besides, some day the track and boardwalk might be gone and future historians will only have this record to show which route 21st century folk used to reach the summit!

On a serious and informative note - large free car park, visitor centre, information boards, fantastic views, very windy, lots of jeans-clad tourists, one way walking circuit (signposted), and a great way to see the surrounding Galway landscape.

To download GPS tracks you must be enrolled and logged in. See "Login or enrol", top right - quick and easy.

Note: ALL information such as Ascent, Length and Creator time taken etc should be regarded as approximate. The creator's comments are opinions and may not be accurate or still correct.
Your time to complete will depend on your speed plus break time and your mode of transport. For walkers: Naismith's rule, a rough and often inaccurate estimate, suggests a time of 2h 5m + time stopped for breaks
Note: It is up to you to ensure that your route is appropriate for you and your party to follow bearing in mind all factors such as safety, weather conditions, experience and access permission.
