Summary for Camenabologue (Céim na mBulóg): Nondescript hill with a lonely and wild feel.

Picture: Camenabologue from Seskin
Camenabologue is an isolated, rounded, boggy hill at the S end of the National Park. Its summit lies close to Table Track so access is straightforward. Views are normally fairly local incl Wicklow’s 3 highest - Lugnaquilia, Tonelagee and Mullaghcleevaun. On a clear day, the Blackstairs and Slievanamon come into focus.

SE. Starting in Glenmalure at the large cp B'vore (T06625 94176), walk across the bridge and follow the Coillte track NW for several k until you reach a junction at A (T03458 96141) which heads up over open bog. This bog track, interspersed with short pieces of wooden boardwalk over the worst boggy sections, leads to the col between Table Mountain and Camenabologue at B (T02085 96698). Leave the Table Track and walk S. From here it is an easy 10 minute ramble to the summit. 6.5k 2hrs

SE. From the same start it can also be arrived at via the captivating Fraughan Rock Glen and Benleagh…see track/3444

W. This hill is also included in a fine circuit around the Glen of Imaal incorporating Lugnaquilla and Table Mt. and potentially Lobawn and Sugarloaf. This generally starts at Fenton’s Pub Fentons (S97307 93552)…for more info check the Lugnaquilla page. Take note of Army Rifle Range active shooting times.

E. It’s also possible to do a long circuit of sorts from GMlur Wf (T08072 92782), first taking in Mullacor and Conavalla and returning by way of the forest track mentioned above. The full circuit is 7hrs+

Notable tracks include track/3368 and the long loops track/2334 and track/3069.

Just to prove you can get good views from Camenabologue, here's a shot from the summit looking over to Lugduff and Mullacor. Note the grass - makes a change from the bog that covers much of the surrounding summits. Camenabologue is nice in that it's high enough to command good views of the surrounding area but not so high as to be permanently shrouded in mist (as Lugnaquilla always seems to be!).

One Sunday in November 2002 there was a strong temperature inversion, leaving the top of the clouds at around 400m. Looking South West from near the summit of Camenabologue there was a clear view of nearby Keadeen (653m) and Carrig mountains (right of the picture). At the left of the picture the slopes of Slievemaan partly obscure the ridgy bump of Ballinedan (652m). On the horizon are the peaks of the Blackstairs with Mount Leinster (795m and 55k away) the most prominent. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/71/comment/223/

From Benleagh I tramped on toward SH626 (refer to Benleagh for start of route). I found the going to be very boggy, even with the recent frost, ice and snow packed on the ground. The constant trudging up and down over peat hags was also tiresome. But all of this paled into insignifigance when I stumbled upon a herd of some 15 deer. I knew there was a reason why I broke away from the pack heading for Lug! I continued on toward Camenabologue with views over Turlough Hill and Camaderry with me every step of the way. It wasnt long before I reached the carin on Camenabologue. Compared to some other summits in the area Camenabologue is somewhat uninspiring. Perhaps its a reflection on the calibre of its neighbours.

A short hop the far side of Camenabologue will take you to the well worn track leading right down into the Glenmalur valley. There is evidence of scrambler bike and quad use in and around the vicinty of the track. Sections of boardwalk are dotted along the top section of the track. Given the state of the ground between these sections of boardwalk perhaps there is an arguement for further work to take place up here. Anything that may lead to the protection and preservation of the landscape and terrain can only be a good thing, once it is carried out in haramony with the surrounding landscape. There is obviously a counter arguement here that this level of infrastructure also provides better access for our scrambler friends, but hey some probelms are easier to erradicate than others!! This track brings you right down the Glenmalur valley and back to the Barravore carpark. There is plenty of tree felling in progress underway at various sections along the track and care should be taken. An enjoyable walk all in all with 16km clocked up in total. One which could be used as an alternative to the sometimes crowded Lugnaquilla. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/71/comment/4507/

Picture: Keadeen from Camenabologue.
Distant views around Keadeen identified.
by simon3 12 Aug 2013
The views from Camenabologue have been mentioned before. Here's one way of identifying some distant peaks on a good day. First find Keadeen, the 653m summit to the west of Lugnaquillia. It's at about 229.5 degrees (great circle, not magnetic). It lines up with the Slievenamon - Knocknahunna ridge. Slievenamon (721m) is around 97.5km away at 229.2 degrees.
Slievenamon is basically sitting in the way of a good view of the Knockmealdowns, however you can see Knocknafallia (668m) to the east and Knockshanahullion (652) to the west at distances of 128.4 and 133.3km respectively. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/71/comment/15066/

It isn't much of a destination in itself but it makes a nice waypoint on a longer loop. When you get to the summit you kind of wonder why you bothered. I just did it in a nice little loop starting at Glenmalure Lodge going up Corrigasleggaun > Carrawaystick > Lugnaquillia > Benleagh > Camenabologue and back down the trail to the hostel / road home. The weather was very wet and visibility was variable (mostly VERY poor). I saw a group of about 25 or 30 deer quite close up between Benleagh and Camenabologue and I surprised a couple of deer in the fog coming down Benleagh very close (10 metres or so). It's a great hike in bad weather but it's probably best if you're already familiar with it. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/71/comment/633/
