I caught this shot of the huge cairn at the summit of Sorrell Hill as the sun went down behind it. I would definitely recommend this summit as an excellent point for anybody interested in photographing the Wicklow Mountains. There are great views of Seefin, Kippure, Duff Hll, Mullaghcleevaun, Moanbane, and the Blessington Lakes Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/280/comment/2093/

It's only a 155 metre climb over a kilometre from the car park at 043 108 A to the top of Sorrel Hill. Photo shows the cairn at the top, which commands nice views of west Wicklow, Blessington Lakes, and the NW corder of the Wicklow Mountains in general.

We climbed this on New Year's Eve in the snow. It was as far into the Wicklow mountains as we dared venture because of the untreated icy roads. We ascended via the forest at Ballynatona to the North. Some of the children found it tough going with snow up to their waists in places, but it was very picturesque and our survival bags made great improvised sledges.

An alternative route to Sorrel Hill is from Ballynatona to the north. There's space to park a car at the entrance to the forest track at O055 138 B, which you can follow to within about 600 metres laterally and 200m vertically of the summit.

I've climbed this 3 or 4 times and it's a grand short hike with a good starting point at the car park at the shoulder approx 2km above Lackan village. Very good for beginners / no cliffs or promotories to worry about. Nice views of Blessington Lake etc. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/280/comment/1833/

To reach this I turned left of the R759 at the Ballysmuttan bridge and then took the next left and followed the ‘road’ until got to the car park at O045108 C. It’s a very easy walk, over good ground, from here to Sorrell’s strange lunar like summit, which is marked by a spectacular cairn which is out of all proportion to the mountains importance as a walker’s destination. Who actually goes to the trouble of putting these things here? Nonetheless it’s a climb well worth doing as you get a brilliant 360° panorama view of the northern end of the Wicklow Mountains, and over Blessington Lakes.
