simon3: Track 1488 in area near Ballycumber Hill, Dublin/Wicklow (Ireland)
Ballycumber SE Traverse

Descent: 430m

Starting from near a bridge on the R747 NW of Tinahely this route uses the Wicklow Way to start up Ballycumber from the East, via Garyhoe Hill, 397m.
The attractions include a great walk through the Mangans area which has something unusual in Ireland, a beech plantation as well as miscellaneous Sitka spruce and larch.
While skirting Garyhoe the view east changes, eventually showing the whole length of the ridge of Moneyteige, Croghan Kinsella and Annagh Hill. This ridge is roughly parallel to that of Muskeagh - Ballycumber.
There is a choice of where exactly you start up the hill to Garyhoe. It might be prudent to start a little earlier than the track shown.
From Garyhoe continue to Ballycumber Hill and then take a fairly direct SSE route back to the Wicklow Way. Unusually there can be high level cattle grazing on the way down from Ballycumber. Veering further south may help keep away from animals.
