Notes on name: Málainn is rare element of obscure origin and meaning, occurring in a handul of place-names scattered throughout the country. For origin of name, see articles by Paul Tempan: The Element Málainn in Place-names in the Kerry Magazine, No. 18, 2008 (15-16) and An Eilimint Málainn i Logainmneacha in the Donegal Annual 2006 (218-19). There are references in early Irish texts to Málu, site of a battle in Leinster. This mountain has been proposed as an identification by Eoin MacNeill (JRSAI lxv, 14), but this is far from certain.

Picture: Maulin from the West.
Maulin has earned the high rate of visits it has through various attractions. It's very accessible from the Crone Wood carpark, itself relatively near Dublin. It can be a component of many circular walks for example around the Dargle River valley and because it has fine views including towards the sea and the mountains.
An obvious place to start to reach it is from Crone Wood Carpark Crone Wd (O1920 1417) from which the summit is 1.3km in a SW direction. Navigating to the top from the carpark can be done by two main switchback routes through the trees. One of these is shown on the current OSI sheet 56 and both are shown on the East-West 1:30000 map. It is also possible to park in the vicinity of the closed car park near A (O210 109) on "Long Hill" and take a path following the edge of the forest first up, then down and finally onto the ridge to the east of Maulin.
Maulin has experienced serious trail erosion particularly on the East side, which has attracted some remedial attention.

Beautiful Summit
by march-fixer 27 Feb 2012
Excellent summit walk ... a fine sunny day. As we headed for Crone Wood at 9.15am, there was drizzle and low cloud at Glencree junction. Head up from the Crone carpark (NOTE – barrier closes 4pm) and break from the Wicklow Way early on B (O19232 13780) to head west south west following the White Route circular markers on the pine trees up along the forest track. You will eventually arrive at a stile C (O18185 13288) leading on to the north face of Maulin. The drizzle had stopped and clouds dispersed.

Take a little time here, if the weather is good, to admire the magnificent views down into Lackandarragh and the valley of the Glencree River as well as right up to the Glencree Reconciliation Centre nestling at the head of the glen.

Turn left straight after the stile and you will see a well defined track to your right D (O18232 13265) leading straight up to the cairn on the summit. This track is slightly worn and can be slippery. Proper walking boots are essential on the rougher tracks to protect your feet and ankles. If you are blessed with good weather, like yesterday, the 360 degree views from the summit are spectacular. Well worth the effort.

There are two main tracks leading on from here: a) head on west for Tonduff or b) head east south east down towards Powerscourt Waterfall. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/327/comment/6699/

Homerclesse on Maulin

Walked this area on Thursday last on a cold but sunny day (I even got a bit of sunburn). I parked in Crone and followed the path to the Stile as described by many contributers previously. I planned to follow the wall up the side of the forest and find the summit that way. This is a very rough route however, so I really would recommend water proof boots and poles. I can only imagine that the Raven's Glen only gets wetter in the Summer months as the ice melts. As a detour I scrambled across the rocks in the Glen to O'Tooles Rocks. The picture shown is one of the many waterfalls in the area. Once the top of the forest is reached it's just a push for the top along the top line of the forest and on to a trail which leads around to the summit. the views were pretty excellent and all the usuals were in view, including Snowdonia in Wales. I will return to this walk and take on the Tonduffs and Djouce another day. This summit is easily followed on Forest tracks to the top of Crone and out to the heather via a forest firebreak.

Aderon on Maulin

What a brilliant weekend walk. There're Lynam's books, as you know, and this was a nice route. On way the down I passed people of all ages climbing from the WW side (past Powerscourt), but had taken the zig-zag or Raven's Glen side. Some may prefer this over the WW because you get your workout with few people and then have a really beautiful walk down a nice path, finally meeting others along the way.

For that much, the walk description was a little strange for the "junctions." I went straight up from the car park (two sets of paths go through the woods, one after the other, to avoid the road a good bit). At the second junction (path & road), go right to almost immediatley be at a road T-junction. Go left and up, coming soon to another "x" junction. Now this road folds back on itself, goes straight (sort of off road) or down. Go straight and up, in the Raven's Glen direction (this was where it was a bit confusing because the guide says to stay on the road, even though the road proper folds back on itself). Go up and to the next junction to go left, and then immediately right to the climb the zig-zags, across a fence and stile (stop for a good few pics of Raven's Glen) and immediately left back on yourself a bit to contour up to Maulin top (I went straight up once I found the next path and aimed for the stone wall). The wind was fierce enough that when I took a step in the direction of the bluff leading to Tonduff, the wind held me even while leaning at 50 degrees! Ah well, so back down the well marked trail on the WW towards Powerscourt. It really is a very relaxing walk that way. Once in the tree cover, I slid down into the rows of red leaves beside a bluff, turned on the ole jetboil (keeping it out of the leaves of course) and had a well earned soup and tea with a book :D (and nearly a nap!).

Misty morning
by simon3 22 Jan 2019
Just sometimes and just for a short while a damp forest can show a misty fairy side. And so it was one January day after a heavy raincloud had passed and the sun had magicked this sprite into the air. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/327/comment/20343/

A quick afternoon walk: Park in Crone car park on the Powerscourt - Lough Bray road. Follow the
Wicklow Way markers until you come out onto open ground on the shoulders of Maulin, turn right up the hill and head for the summit. Nice views from the top. Then head north until you come to a wall, turn right and handrail the wall till you come to a break in the forest to your left. Follow the break all the way down to the forest track, turn right, and head back to the car park. Should only take 2.5 - 3 hours tops. The picture shows Maulin and Tonduff, taken from the summit of the Great Sugar Loaf. Funnily enough, Maulin looks lower than my vantage point, even though it's 70 metres higher...
