Starting in Bray near the promenade, this track heads up over the top of Bray Head. There are spectacular views all around. The quality of the track in good condition all the way.

There was a slight error made at Windgates 6.07636 52.17563 (at the end of Cliff Road, where we veered south and missed the correct track, which goes straight on. In any event it joined the Greystones track, but necessitated crossing a wall.

The track brings you all the way to Greystones where this is an excellent pub overlooking the harbour. There is good food and drink available here.

The return journey takes the lower track along the face of Bray Head and back to the promenade in Bray. This track could also be started in Greystones, since there is excellent parking available around the harbour area.
