Picture: View down to Lough Nananagan
Great panorama for little effort
by march-fixer  31 May 2013
We picked up the track to Camaderry on the E side of Turlough Hill and followed it all the way SE to the top of Camaderry. While an enjoyable summit, it does not give the same enjoyment as the more easterly top. We therefore carried on SE along the established path to T09041 97337 A where there is a little cairn on the top of '667'. Do walk a little further east so as to enjoy the near 360 degree panorama that can be seen from the NW clockwise to E and right around to the SW. There is not to much evidence of errosion and thankfully little rubbish!

Rather than retrace our steps back to Turlough Hill we decided to descend down across the ENE face of Camaderry and then 'drop down' to Lough Nahanagan. There is a beautiful view T08463 98725 B of the lake from this high vantage point, with the rain falling, making it worth the while in selecting this route (See Track No. 1450).

Picture: Herds of deer across Glenealo Valley
darrenf on Camaderry Mountain, 2009
by darrenf  23 Jun 2009
Sunday 21st june promised to be a delightful day, according to the forecast in any case! Myself and my better half headed off toward Glendalough with the suncream at the ready. Arrived at the upper carpark to find it perhaps only half full which I found surprising. Headed directly towards the miners village from the carpark and onwards up the zig-zag track that winds up over the miners village toward the bridge on Glenealo river. A fine mist surrounded us at this point, and this combined with the warm sun rays made for a interesting if not refreshing weather front! Left the masses completing the spink loop at the bridge and headed along the right bank of the Glenealo river. There is a track along this bank although it should be noted that in places it is quite soggy under foot. The track continues on along the river the climbs gently to take you toward Turlough Hill. At this stage the mist was lifting and we headed directly for Camaderry. The summit of Camaderry does offer fantastic views in almost every direction with Scarr, Tonelagee, Turlough hill, Lugduff, Derrybawn etc all clearly visible. What a place to be on a fine summers day. Met two fellow walkers on top who kindly offered us some tasty treats....From the summit, navigation is not a problem as a track unfolds which will lead you directly to spot height 677. From here the spur of Camaderry opens out in front of you and takes you toward the track which is mentioned in numerous posts on this mountain. This track which winds down through the ferns and forest from the spur to the carpark is quite steep and care shoud be taken. It does offer beautiful views over to the lower lake though! Its a very short loop totally 9km which can be comfortably completed in 4 and a half hours. Perhaps next time we will head around turlough hill towards Lugduff to pick up the spink. Needless to say there are a numerous herds of deer above in the Glenealo valley, we counted 37 deer at one stage! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/114/comment/3880/

We started from the Upper Car Park in Glendalough and made our way around the right hand side of the lake to the old mines. Quite a few deer can be seen on the lower part of the climb. The route up is fairly straightforward (although soggy underfoot at this time of year) – just continue along the banks of the Glenealo river. You will pass a nice wooden bridge crossing the river but it is best to stay on the right hand side. Shortly after the stream dies out, begin to veer to the right towards Turlough Hill. Some nice scenery can be seen as you head towards the fenced reservoir, however, you will find a maze of peaty hags to negotiate which, unless luck is on your side means getting mucky ankles. Once you approach the fenced area take the southern route around and again negotiate some hags towards the summit of Camaderry. The summit is quite level and the cairn is not the most apparent at first. It is aournd here where we begun to meet several other climbers coming in the opposite direction. From here it is a short walk over to the second lower cairn. The scenery from here was spectacular and definitely worth taking the camera out of the bag for.

From here follow the path down along the ridge for about 30 minutes until you veer down a forest track to the right. You also have the option to continue straight down along the ridge for an easier descent, but by taking the forest track to the right you are brought directly down to the Upper car park. Just be cautious as this part of the descent is very strenuous. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/114/comment/1514/

Pádraig on Camaderry Mountain, 2004
by Pádraig  12 Jun 2004
I climbed Camaderry last Monday (June Bank Holiday) in beautiful sunshine. The route I chose began in the upper car park in Glendalough, which was full of people basking in the seasonal weather around the shores of the lake. As the climb progressed up past the miners village the route became less populated. Into Glenealo, herds of deer appear to keep you company. Having proceeded up the valley for sometime I turn and head towards Turlough Hill (north). This entails a steep climb over heather and bog. As you circle round towards Camaderry, you must negotiate a section of peat hags. It reminded me of a scene from the sci/fi series Blakes 7 for some reason. Anyway, you soon begin to climb once more until you reach Camaderry. In sunshine it offers a great view of the surrounding area. I concluded my trip back to the upper car park via a simple descent through the forest where a clear path is provided for your convienence. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/114/comment/988/

Glendalough-Camaderry-Turlough Hill-Glendassan
by nkenealy  1 Apr 2012
Beautiful Monday morning starting out in the Upper Lake Car Park of Glendalough. The mist was still rising from the lake because it was only just bright. But it ended up being one of the hottest days of the year so far - 19 degrees for March 27th is pretty good. We even got to see the peaks of Snowdonia in Wales from Camaderry - first time for me to see Wales from Ireland. I got some of this route from the Mountain Views list of tracks - see Ireland, Tomaneena, Dublin/Wicklow - Thanks to march-fixer.

The walk starts from Glendalough upper lake car park. 4 euro needed to park there - make sure you have the change. From the car park, walk back towards the entrance and take a left towards the Education centre which is down the road beside the lake at 50 metres. Just after the Education Centre turn right to take the track uphill towards Camaderry. It's a big track at the beginning and easy to find all the way up. Still grassy though and not worn.
Up to Camaderry is a nice easy walk but was pretty warm with the sun on our backs coming up from the East. There was no wind even at the top. The first cairn was Camaderry East at 677 metres. Altimeter reading 675 - pretty close. We even got to see the peaks of Snowdonia in Wales from Camaderry - first time for me to see Wales from Ireland - must be about 140 km to Snowdon from the Wicklow mountains.

Then headed North West to Camaderry itself which is about 25 metres higher. From Camaderry we could see Lugnaquilla on the far side of the Glenmalure valley. Our next target was Turlough Hill reservoir. Lots of activity there cars and vans coming up and down the road. We would love to have gotten a tour. There's a similar hydro-electic project over in Wales which is open to tourists. A tour would be fascinating for kids ( and me!) and give them an interest in engineering. How about it? - Electric Ireland!

The road down to the Wicklow gap is pretty easy and we saw two other walkers heading straight up Tonelegee on the other side of the road. That's Tonelagee in the picture above. We picked up the signs for Kevin's Way with the yellow monk that looks like a character from Star Wars. This is straight down by the Glendassan River. The path all the way back to Glendalough follows on the right hand side of the river and passes an old miners village. Lots of remnants of that activity still there - pyro - morphite was what was mined - see Mining in Wicklow for more information. Eventually you hit the main road between the hotel in Glendalough and the lower lake ( near the round tower) and we made our way along the boardwalk and joined the Glendalough daytrippers as we walked the 800m back to the Upper Lake Car park.
