Small is beautiful

I groaned when I realised that due to the change in the local 100 list, I now had to climb almost double the number of mountains than those I had yet to complete on the old list if I wanted to get certified by MV! However, Wicklore’s words have come back to me time and again over the last fortnight, for it was he who let me in on a secret: some of the finest views in Wicklow and Wexford are from the smaller and less frequented hills. How right he is! The new local 100 list includes some real gems, and I think Kilmichael Hill is charming.

There is parking for one vehicle if you tuck in close to the hedge at T11060 64189 starA right at the start of the walk. Pass through the gap in the hedge and follow the informal pathway that meanders gradually upwards through an established deciduous forest of beech and hazel. This walk is at its absolute best during spring; delicate new leaves quiver on the boughs, the ground is misty with thousands of fragrant bluebells and the air alive with birdsong. After around 15 minutes, the pathway passes out of the deciduous forest and abruptly enters a dark, tunnel-like route through a young conifer plantation. Before long it meets a service trackway, the juncture incongruously marked by a traffic cone and makeshift arrows! Bearing right, most of the obvious ascent is now over, and after taking the next left, the track undulates its way gently upwards towards a mast, past hedgerows bursting with golden gorse and broom. Several deep potholes in the little used track team with tadpoles. Colourful patches of Common Bird’s Foot Trefoil, Lousewort and Common Milkwort carpet the thickly vegetated centre of the track, while the heady perfume of rowan blossom hangs thickly in the air.

The summit area is pretty ordinary, the views of the rolling Wexford farmland snatched away by the maturing trees. MV has the summit to the NW of the mast in the conifer plantation, but the ground appears to be lower in that direction. The made up ground closest to the mast appears to be higher and the summit is therefore at T09794 63203 starB or thereabouts. Return via the same route. The traffic cone certainly comes in handy, as it could be easy to miss the pathway into the conifer plantation, now on your left. An easy hill to summit, taking around an hour up and back.
