Picture: The view towards Sorrel from the summit of Lugnagun
 
csd on Lugnagun, 2007
by csd  4 Nov 2007
Lugnagun can be reached in about 40 minutes from the parking spot at O 02991 11161 A, so it's probably more worthwhile to take in Sorrel Hill at the same time. If you stay on the ridge from Sorrel, the views towards Blessington Lakes become obscured by the plantation, but you can cut down into the forest and pick up one of the tracks for your return journey. The trees open out to give some lovely views of the lakes. The summit isn't much to write home about: no cairn or other feature marks it out.

Picture: Lake view from just below Lugnagun
Here lies the mortal remains of ...
by march-fixer  30 Apr 2012
wicklore's poles in the picture of the 14.07.2008 look like the grave markings for Dessie1's triumphal exhibitionism of the 24.09.2010.

This is not the most endearing spot in Wicklow, but a nice one on the way somewhere else. Went here as part of a mountain biking ride lately. Point C is the handiest spot to tackle Lugnagun from, with the added advantage of being able to carry on and summit Sorrel Hill as part of the walk.

Carrig Wood is a place to just do circuit walks with the views over the lakes. Best done on a nice day when the wind is from the north. That way there is plenty of shelter. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/633/comment/6788/

Picture: Marking the indistinct top of Lugnagun
 
An indistinct high point.
by Harry Goodman  21 May 2012
On 29 March 2012 I parked off road O 018125 B and walked a short way N up the road to a metal gate. Once across I made my way NW around and through a heavy cluster of whin bushes to reach clear heather covered ground. After crossing a fence I met another fence line on my right running up the hillside which I followed to near the top, just short of the tree line. At this point I crossed the fence using stones placed there for this purpose to a raised ditch running from S to N across the hill top and skirting the treeline. As already indicated by others the unmarked top lies along this ditch and having been there I have no grounds to challenge the currently listed high point but for anyone in doubt as to the true top a short walk along the length of the ditch will cross the high point! Further along, the ditch and the forest edge turned sharply left downhill at a point where a well made step stile facilitated my crossing over onto a well trodden track. I followed the track down along the top of the ditch for some 200m to meet a N to S forest road but went no further given my car was on the other side of the hill. Clearly this and other forest tracks could be used as an alternative access point for Lugnagun. I returned by my outward route. In all just over 2k up and down in 30/40 minutes.

Easy now that trees are felled
by Pepe  24 Aug 2015
50 minutes return trip from parking the car at C. Walked up the road to where a double line of very pale green sapling protectors lead all the way north to what may be the true summit. This cuts out some of the zig-zagging mentioned in other posts. Stood on top of the highest tree stump I could find and proclaimed it to be the peak.

kaybee on Lugnagun, 2008
by kaybee  21 Apr 2008
Took a walk up Lugnagun 20-4-2008...Limited parking (max 4 or 5 cars) at O002 122 C. Followed very distinct forest path, at any point you can leave the path and head north through the trees (or clearings, as much of them are now) and generally cross or follow the zig-zag path that is clearly marked on OS map - the paths are quite accurate, the forest may not be so, as there is much clearing going on as of my visit. On reaching the summit, there is not much to mark the point - I guessed at 'my point' , but on the way back I noticed a very boggy, waterlogged patch with a stone... maybe that is somebody's more accurate guess at Lugnagun's summit, if it is, it's as good as any!
