A nice challenging walk. Challenging due to the fact that the first half of the walk is a constant climb to the summit of Camaderry.

Start at the hotel in Glendalough and head west along the road to the Upper Lake until you meet the forest track heading back up north east. Follow this track all the way to the path junction on the ridge. Keep left continuing to climb higher along the ridge. The track is a lovely grassy path that leads you virtually all the way to the summit. The views back over your tracks are spectacular and as good as you will get anywhere. There is a nice cairn on the summit of Camaderry which provides adequate shelter for three people.

From Camaderry you have to cross some messy peat hags to reach the man-made lake at Turlough Hill. Swing north and around the lake boundary to meet up with the access road. Follow this road all the way down. At the entrance barrier swing south-east down the track and cross the road following the St. Kevin's Way markers. The next 200m of this track leaves a lot to be desired and requires some deft foot-work to keep your feet dry!

We did not follow the official detour to the main road, but continued to follow the stream 'gingerly' until we met up with the official track again. It is then just a case of following this track all the way down the valley and back to the start. We were blessed in that the rain stopped at the start and restarted with a vengeance as we re-entered the car-park at the finish!
