Approaches
Leaving Dublin head South for Kilmacanoge, Take the slip road after the petrol station over the bridge and head for Roundwood and on Laragh. Leaving Laragh head for Glendalough, the Visitor Centre carpark will be on your left..

Start
Leaving the Visitor Centre turn left and keeping an eye out for the Wicklow Way sign near the Hotel, follow the Wicklow Way up hill, across the road and uphill through the pine and beech trees to a forest track, here you keep to the Wicklow Way until you reach Paddock Hill,

Points visited
Picking up the track on your left follow it along all the way to the top of Scarr on your left you can see Tonelagee and the Brockage your next goal. Leaving Scarr head towards Kanturk but turn off along a faint track that will take you towards the Waterfall and car park at Glenmacnass. Here carefully cross the river and begin the first main climb of the day. Take the time to enjoy the views of Lough Ouler and over your shoulder where you've been. At the summit pause rest and begin the steep slippy descent of Tonelagee, reaching the Brockage Ridge its about an hour to Brockage, with great views to the left and right. At Brockage turn and head towards Camaderry aiming to hit the road across from the bridge (T09764 98498 (Point A)) This downhill section has a lot of ankle breakers hidden in the heather, so step lightly. Reaching the bridge follow the miners track as it winds its way up the flank of Camaderry, passing ruins and spoil heaps as you go. Reaching the S.E Top there is a well worn track that will bring you on to the second Camaderry. Your next goal is Turlough Hill on the far side of a boggy col. Passing by Turlough Hill walk on towards the Quarry and on to a high point that looks down on a nasty boggy section that must be crossed. The aim here is to head towards Conavalla and turn for the Lugduff ridge as soon as possible.. But enjoy the views down the valley towards Glendalough.There are many tracks that will take you along this next leg, the ground is broken and wet in spots but not bad. On one side Camaderry and Glendalough and on the other Glenmalur with Lug rising high. The last high point reached is Lugduff before you head down to the boardwalk, here you pick up the Wicklow Way which takes you down to the car park in about 50 minutes.

Finish
When you reach the car park you have a couple of choices about the last leg, down the public road or along by the lake...

Point A: T09764 98498 (turn area map On)
