A route to the Ballinacor horseshoe
by Jfcrebbin  13 Feb 2011
Completed an exploratory walk 12/2/2011with a view to leading a group later on. We tried crossing the Drumgoff Brook but found it to be too fast flowing and further up it becomes a ravine. Therefore the only practical access is to follow the forest track (entered south of the ruined barracks) and to ford the brook just past an abandoned cart. This was done on a day following moderate rain and with good boots and gaiters the feet stayed dry. The northerly spur is steep and quite boggy. Views from the top are most rewarding, particularly the fine view up Glenmalure. This makes quite a good access point for making a horseshoe tour of the Balinacor estate, taking in a fine ridge walk encompassing Croaghnamoira and Ballinacor Mountain.

Fantastic Views for Minimal Effort
by Bunsen7  11 Feb 2018
On a clear day, surely this represents one of the best viewing points in Wicklow? The picture perfect vista down Glenmalure ensures it lives up to its billing as one of the longest glacial valleys in the British Isles if not only in Ireland. An ambitious claim perhaps but one which the Wicklow tourist board are more than happy to advertise.

The track up from T102893 A is not at all challenging but shows evidence of footfall so good boots and gaiters are recommended. Would be easy to negotiate after a dry spell and would make a handy walk with older children if in the area.

The view is as a good a lesson in glaciation as any textbook can provide.

A highlight amongst the lower hills of the region and another good excuse to head for Glenmalure! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/713/comment/19853/
