I did this walk with a group of scouts in February, with snow, ice and very cold weather. We stayed in the little An Oige hostel near the Baravore ford deep in the Glenmalure Valley. (A temperature gauge in the hotel read -5 Celsius inside!). We took a group of 12-15 year old scouts who managed the walk so this will give you an indication of whether you can do it. However be careful on the descent into Fraughan Rock Glen - steep and care is needed at any time of year. This walk takes in Camenabologue and Lugnaquillia. It follows a forest track for several kms, involves a lengthy bog crossing later on, has a seemingly endless ascent and gives views of a huge sweep of the Wicklow Mountains (on a clear day).
