Scenic loop around Glencullen

Saturday 31 May, 10.15am, as part of training for the HeadsUp 5 peaks challenge, decided to do Captain Vertigo's Track 2035 starting at Johnny Fox's pub. I can't match his poetic style but just a few comments. The road to Wicklow Way is pleasant and exchanged greetings with a few locals, marvelling at the gardens most people seem to manage these days. Plodded up the forestry road/Wicklow Way, overtaken by a pair of athletes. Struck out at the edge of the forestry and up to Prince William's Seat. Then across to Knocknagun and Glendoo, fantastic slightly hazy views of Dublin Bay and Wicklow. Underfoot a bit boggy but only minor jumps required. Crossed the bog from Glendoo, following the west bank of the river north to the forest by Cruagh and taking the boardwalk and then the forest road to Zipit - I didn't know about this set-up and stood for a while envying the young folk monkeying about. Then an attack up Tibradden where I stopped for a late lunch about 2pm. Continuing east to Fairy Castle/Two Rock, impressed by the work on these paths - I will be bringing the family to see the Dublin Mountain Way. Then down to the SE, took a turn east TOO SOON and reached a sign - bikes only! Hurried along to get back to a forest track, just missed getting run over by 2 bikes, then around the forest by the 'gallery tomb' and out onto the main road.(being a golfer, I did NOT cut across the golf course as the captain did). Arrived back at the pub for a lovely pint after a total time of 5h40 but measuring later it was 22.7km so the captain's shortcut takes off 800m... In summary, a great day out, especially because I am a debutant in the Dublin mountains despite arriving in the city in 1971. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/303/comment/16092/
