Wicklow Way Easy Access
Short Summary created by simon3, Colin Murphy, jackill, Trailtrekker  11 Jun 2021
The Wicklow Way passes over the western and southern flanks of this hill and can be used to provide access to the summit from either side. It is a pleasant walk, with good views when there is a break in the treeline.

There is limited parking O18095 15925 A from where you head south east along the forest track following the Wicklow Way. This is a gentle ascent to O18826 15270 B where you leave the way and make a hairpin left turn to continue following forest track up to a bench at a viewpoint O18367 15756 C where the forest track ends. From here it is a matter of following a narrow but well defined track to the unmarked but clear summit. (Make sure to go the whole way to the end of this narrow track!) (As of July 2019, the narrow track has become badly overgrown - see note below 'The Briar Path')

An alternative start point is at O190 150 D near the Glencree hostel. There is more ample parking at this point. This approach is shorter in distance, but starting from a lower height and has a steeper ascent. Again it is a matter of following the way to O18826 15270 B where you head for the summit as described above.

Note: Unlike what is shown on the maps, the entire top of this hill is forested! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1100/comment/15344/
