Short Summary created by wicklore  1 Nov 2010
Glendoo is a typical featureless Wicklow summit, which requires a slog over bog, and would require good navigation. One approach to Glendoo is from the Coillte forest car park at O13848 22710 A. (unfortunately several cars have been broken into at a time on occasions here). Cross the road to the west and go through the Coillte barrier. (this is across the road from the Tibradden Forest car park). Use the OSi map to follow the forest trails to approximately O13945 22144 B where a board walk path will be spotted heading into the trees on the left. Follow this onto open hillside and use your navigational skills to ascend and cross a large area of bog. The nature of the terrain means that you may see no further than the bog surrounding you. The summit is any point close to O1418 2043 C, and is unmarked. Views open up at the summit area and the Sugar Loaf is a curiosity with its conical summit sticking out above nearby Prince Williams Seat.
Another approach is from the Military Road to the west. Starting at O12819 20170 D, follow a trail into the bog which will help you get near the summit area. Whatever approach you take, bring the gaiters! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/303/comment/5063/
