Lobawn has a flattish top. A series of ridges lead from it. The picture was taken from the broad, fairly flat ridge leading towards Donard to the west. The village of Donard is a convenient place to start from when walking in this area. The picture shows Sugarloaf (552m) in the mid-ground with Keadeen some 8k away on the skyline. Lobawn connects to Sugarloaf via a southerly ridge. This is to the left of the summit shown here. Between Keadeen and Sugarloaf lies the Glen of Imail, which includes an artillery range. As you can see from the foreground, Lobawn’s west ridge has a wet boggy surface. Unfortunately scramblers or dune-buggies have considerably damaged the surface of this ridge in places Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/222/comment/379/

The ridges up to Lobawn are beginning to succumb to the dreaded motorbike scramblers. It hasn't quite reached the levels of Slieve Maan yet, but I'm sure it's not far off. Picture shows the summit - anyone know what this pillar means? There's another one on the way over from Sugarloaf. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/222/comment/566/

Save for Summer Days
by CaptainVertigo  1 Nov 2011
I recently completed a circuit of Church Mountain, Corriebracks, Lowbawn and Sugar Loaf. The route was about eleven miles in total and was executed on a warm wet afternoon in late October. The dank gloomy mushy Wicklow hills were rendered even more awful by the oppressive overbearing conifers. I feel perfectly safe on a dark open mountain but there is something ominous about high forest. I suspect it conjures up notions of wolves, ghouls et al. Anyway a couple of WARNINGS. You really need an up to date map as there are trees popping up all over the place. My old map seemed bereft of various groves that appeared in my path. Secondly do please look at some of the wonderful work of the Wicklow Mountain Path people. For example they are quite right to suggest that you keep to the high ground to the west of the "tree gap" as you make your way from Corriesbrack to Lobawn. See map,See http://www.pathsavers.org/Surveys/Lobawn%20Corriebracks.pdf I notice the David Herman indicates the same route in his slim but invaluable volume on the Wicklow hills Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/222/comment/6605/

Climbed this from Sugarloaf (which disappointingly isn't here on MV, one less to claim as bagged :-( ) There isn't a whole lot up there on the somewhat dull top, except the forlorn WD (War Department) Pillar awash in its watery peat. A beautiful Indian summer day, what a change from the washout summer days. Lovely views form up here, the mist over the midlands was punctuated by the summits peeping through of the nearby ranges of Blackstairs, etc.It's a gateway to the Northern ridge partly enclosing the Glen of Imaal. My 100th summit logged on MV... woohoo! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/222/comment/4095/

Picture: Toppled stone marker
Toppled stone marker
by hibby  10 Sep 2021
Easy ridge walk from Sugarloaf, with well-defined path and firm underfoot at this time of year. The War Department stone marker at the summit of Lobawn has toppled and is lying face-down in the mud. The one at the 635m summit south of Lobawn is still standing and it's possible to make out an inscription - it appears to say WAD No 12.

From the summit of Lobawn I walked east along the ridge to Pollaghdoo (Table Mountain West) and then back west to Pinnacle, where there is the remains of a stone structure marked simply as "cairn" on the map. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/222/comment/23269/
