Bunsen7: Track 3403 in area near Church Mountain, Dublin/Wicklow (Ireland)
Length: 11.0km, Creator time taken: 2h26m, Ascent: 603m,
Descent: 608m

Places: Start at N93181 01931, Church Mountain, Corriebracks, end at Start
Logged as completed by 1
Took this track to bag Church Mountian and then Corriebracks on a cold wet winter afternoon. Visibility was poor higher up in blizzard like conditions, hence I returned by way of ascent and didn't hang around too long on the mountains, though it was still an enjoyable ramble and parts of the route are quite sheltered between forestry.
Following the forest track upwards I came to the final hairpin bend in the track going to the left (northwards) but also where a wide open gate presents itself to the right (southwards). I ignored either option, and headed straight on (eastwards) up a faint track between forestry with limited walker erosion that is grassy at first before turning heathery. This track leads you to within a couple of hundred metres of Church mountain summit.
I headed north east off Church following clear track which leads to a wider forest track which narrows as it goes south east towards Corriebracks. Stick with this track after it bends south and you reach the hardcore road. Go left on reaching the road and follow track to Corriebracks. I found some timber which I placed on the edge of the road to mark the turn off into the forestry.
