Quo Vadis - Mystery Solved?
Taking advantage of the good weather last week we took our baby up Tibradden one evening in the fantastic rucksack/harness that she will get to know well over the next couple of years! While the work to improve the walking route up Tibradden has clearly been going on for some time, my photo shows that it has only recently been officially opened. Padodes’ general forum post ‘Quo Vadis’ (19/09/08), and my own ‘Quo Did This’ (08/12/08) asked who had created a wide stone causeway above Knockree in Glencree valley. Well judging by the similarity of the new paths up Tibradden with the Knockree path, I would now guess that it was the same group – possibly the Dublin Mountain Partnership. I understand that there is to be a new Dublin Mountains Way stretching from Shankill to Tallaght. I’m not sure of the route but I would say that the work at Knockree is a part of this development. In a Tibradden post Surtr says he is not too keen on the new trail. However it has been constructed using a lot of local stone/rocks/sand so it could be worse. The boardwalk and stone path will protect the fragile bog along this hugely popular route. Perhaps when the Dublin Mountains Way is complete and publicised it will attract a lot more activity to the area, at which time the protective trail will be even more important. I suppose it remains to be seen if increased activity on Tibradden will be a good or bad thing. I mean this purely from the point of view of the environment up there. I can’t find any detailed information about the Dublin Mountains Way route, so if anyone knows anything could they share it?
