This is a quick, simple up-and-down walk from the car park at the Wicklow Gap. We did it early one morning in November, hoping to see the sunrise from the summit, but were thwarted by the mist. 3.8km total, 337m ascent. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/33/comment/4334/

Picture: Tonelagee from Kanturk
As Tough as it can be in Wicklow mountains
by Sarkuns  20 Sep 2013
I was planing this climb since the start of the year. But I was a bit scared of this one. I didn't dare to Take Tonelagee alone so I was waiting for an opportunity to come along. And on 14913 I finally got the chance. With my friend and blessing from Irish weather goods we were able to walk my long prepared 20 km route.
Glenmacnass Car Park ---> Tonelagee NE Top ---> Tonelagee ---> Stoney Top ---> Kanturk ---> Scar ---> Glenmacnass Car Park
Around 20 Km
approximately 4 h

Of course In this comment only about Tonelagee

The route
We start from Glenmacnass Car Park and first thing in the list was crossing the Glenmacnass river. Then thru the woodland almost in straight line and in a blink of an eye you have brilliant view over the valley. Then following the forest ridge we went around pretty deep gully. After that we left the fores behind us and went straight un Tonelagee NE top. From there forward to Tonelagee.

Conditions
As I write before we had the luxury of perfect weather so the river let us across peacefully.
The forest tracks where unmistakeable (On bad weather (RAIN) conditions tracks will be muddy and very slippery ).
Path around the forest and up to NE Top was over grown muddy and full with watery holes. Sometimes hard to see a path at all. Perfect place to test your waterproof boots... If you don't have them think twice before sing up to this one.
It turns out that my hiking boots where not waterproof as it was written on the box. So I was forced to walk the rest of the way with wet feet... my good walking socks save the day only because of them I was able to do it without discomfort.
The hardest part was to get up to Tonelagee. I have to say that it is the toughest mountain in Wicklow. Very steep, eroded and physically demanding path leads up to the very top.

Overall
It was harder than ever before and I know this was My best and the most exiting day in Wicklow . Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/33/comment/15193/

Tonegalee
by Kennyj  22 Mar 2015
Had the pleasure of climbing Tonegalee yesterday with clear blue skies all around,parked at the carpark at the Wicklow gap and went straight up.There is a faint track quite wet underfoot on the lower slopes which fades out the higher you go. Easy enough climb,the summit is marked with a trig point.From the summit I made my way over to Stoney top stopping at the pillar stone with its cross engraving to admire the beautiful heart shaped Lough Oulier.Super panoramic views all around the day been so good.Time taken two hours with a stop for lunch,elevation gain of about 400 metres to summit height of 812 metres.

Picture: Par what?
 
Fore!!!
by ewen  28 Nov 2016
Did from the Wicklow gap car park following track 2378.This starts immediately opposite the top entrance to the car park next to the main road. 5 days before there had been snow but now the path was wet and boggy. Low cloud meant limited visibility so I didn't go on to the north top but squelched back to the car.
Now, why was there a golf club and ball at the trig.? Are we now going to run the risk of being brained by golf balls going up the hills? I've see some weird stuff left at tops but this was the strangest. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/33/comment/18720/

Picture: Cíara's first Arderin!
The perfect beginner's mountain
by Colin Murphy  27 Mar 2017
Besides crossing Glenmacnass River at the start and end, (which has seen many an unfortunate walker ascend in soggy boots) Tonelagee is a pleasant and relatively easy climb from the carpark near the waterfall. The first 2km to the SW rarely demands any effort and it is not until the final few hundred metres before the summit that any real steepness is encountered. A popular walk, on any fine Sunday you can literally encounter hundred of walkers (and the carpark can be at capacity), but this is a great one if you're introducing someone to the joys of hillwalking, as I was my daughter Cíara, who thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful day in the hills.
