The existing tracks around Blessington Lakes (see Track 2173) have been extended with this new on on the south western shore near Valleymount.

Just 100m east of the Valleymount bridge there is a good car-park that is entered through a security barrier. The walk starts along the lake shore and then continues under the trees along the raised bank. On a sunny day it is truly wonderful here.

The track is not as flat and wide as that of Track 2173 in that it is not suitable for buggies. There are some narrow parts and some steps. There are still negotiations continuing with the landholder at the southern end of the path to allow access to a lane-way leading out on to the Ballyknockan road (as of June 2013 there is no official access to this lane-way and it means retracing your steps). If you see the landowner it is possible to get permission to cross the southern edge of the field and exit via the gate to the lane.
