Summary for Cloghernagh (Clocharnach): Summary
Summary created by Trailtrekker, Dessie1 2014-04-21 20:46:45
The quickest and easiest way to add Cloghernagh to your summit list is to start at the ( Flem FB (T08755 92136))Bridge which crosses the Avonbeg river at the base of the Zigzags(Go around the farmyard at the start and not through it!).A boggy easily identifiable track leads all the way to the 800m summit (Cairn at A (T058 918)).Breathtaking views of Benleagh and Fraughen Rock Glen can be seen from the steep face to the north.

It can also be taken on the descent or ascent of Lugnaquilla. From Lugnaquilla head north east taking a route near the south prison, before turning east and taking a gentle ascent on a clearly worn path to the summit.

The route from the Fraughan Rock Glen starts by fording the river near a track junction at B (T05851 93923), head 150 yards west to exit through a gate before doubling back to make the steepish and boggy ascent along a fence and forestry to reach Arts Lough. Continue along the boggy but distinct track until it rises up a ramp that leads over the top edge of the cliffs. At about point C (T06195 92331) take a south westerly route to the summit.

Parked up at the carpark next the footbridge at Baravore B'vore (T066 942). Crossed the Avonbeg River via the footbridge. Contuined along the gravel track which leads up to the an oige youth hostel and shortly afterwards we took the track which bears left (contuining on the original track will take you further into the Glenmalur valley). Followed this forest track right around into Fraughan Glen where the views really open out in front of you. The entire track is not clearly identified on Sheet 56 but it will take you deep into the glen and only really peters out at the back wall of the glen - at this point another faint track can be picked up which stays to the right hand side of the benleagh river and continues up and over Fraughan Glen. Spectacular views back down the glen and across to Lugduff can be enjoyed.

Once on top of the glen you wil notice a fairly obvious and steep looking 'grassy ramp' to your left hand side at roughly D (T044 928). Taking a route directly up the ramp will being you to the ridge (marked as the Ballinaskea area on the map) which leads across to the cliffs overlooking Arts Lough. A well deserved lunch break can be enjoyed here while savourying the spectacular views before you. From this point a faint but easily identifed track emerges which will take you directly to the summit of Cloghernagh. From the summit if you take a route toward E (T061 924) you will discover another track which will take you safely down to the shore of Arts Lough. Well worth taking another short break!! Further obvious tracks emerge which descend along the forest edge and take you back onto the gravel track leading into Fraughan Glen. Simply retrace your steps back to the car at Baravore. A very enjoyable walk. Linkback:

Cloghernagh from the other side! Park at Dromgoff barracks and follow the Wicklow Way signs into the forest on the right. Use the Healy Glendalough/Glenmalure map to head for Kelly's Lough. This makes a nice spot for lunch. You can then head up Cloghernagh and come down on the Glenmalure road, or else head east over Carrawaystick Mountain and follow the tracks back down to Drumgoff barracks. Picture shows Kelly's Lough, with the spur of Carrawaystick heading towards Lugnaquilla in the background. Linkback:

Picture: Serrated Northern Side of Glenmalure
mneary34 on Cloghernagh
by mneary34 15 Jan 2006
On an early January morning I headed for Lug going via Clohernagh having parked the car at the main car park beside the river crossing near the An Oige Hostel in Glenmalure. My route was along forest tracks past the Hostel and then for the base of the Fraughan Rock Glen at a point F (T054 938). From that point there's a route beside the forest edge with a climb of 200 metres to Art's Lough. Going past the lough on its northern side approximately 300 metres further south east there is a path which leads not too steeply in a southerly direction eventually towards the summit of Clohernagh which is 300 metres above Art's Lough. Any route directly up from the lough should be avoided as it will include very steep ground. I took GPS readings on the summit and while I agree exactly with the grid ref. given for Clohernagh at G (T057 919) the cairn is actually at A (T058 918). On the way to the summit great views open to the north and the attached photo shows how the northern side of Glenmalure which looks so big from the valley floor reduces in scale from near the top of Clohernagh. To appreciate the scale of Glenmalure the green area in the foreground looks almost like grass but is forest. Linkback:

No deer but...
by darrenf 7 Aug 2010
In Wicklow it would be uncommon not to spot a deer on almost every major mountain walk but I never came across a wild mountain hare until Cloghernagh. He might not be very clear in the photo but this little fella almost 'followed' me for some time and was by no means shy!! Linkback:
