This gps track includes two walks: 1 up Wolftrap Mountain which is an easy stroll up a track and 2 an exploration of three summits from the Glendine road. The second might look easy: not too much climbing and not that far, but don't be deceived. There aren't many tracks and the vegetation underfoot (heather with moss) is energy sapping. Where there are tracks, for example out to Carroll's Hill, they make for much easier progress. Often however the tracks (really, lines where a few people or deer have walked occasionally) follow their own logic which only sometimes heads for a summit.
