simon3: Track 2248 in area near Lugnagun, Dublin/Wicklow (Ireland)
Lugnagun - Sorrel - Black Hill Longish walk over mixed terrain.
Length: 21.3km, Creator time taken: 5h46m, Ascent: 581m,
Descent: 617m

Places: Start at O00278 12328, Lugnagun, Sorrel Hill, Black Hill, end at O00041 12323 237m W from Start
Logged as completed by 1
Start from the west end of the forest around Lugnagun ( much of the trees have been harvested as of 2013 ) where there is limited parking. The route takes in three summits in the area on forest roads or tracks for a high percentage of the time. The ascent up Black Hill starts over heather which leads to a path beside a ditch to the summit. The track of Black Hill to the west visits the memorial to an aircraft crash in 1941.
The route from the monument is feasible but is largely through untracked and often quite high heather, which can be avoided by going directly from Black Hill to the NE skipping the memorial or returning from the memorial to the top.
The last 3km of the route form a balcony walk looking over comparatively short trees (as of 2013) to the Blessington lakes.

For summiteers there is a Carn to the north of Sorrel hill in Carrigleitrim which this walk could be extended to take in.
