There are four summits that ring the Kilbride army rifle range in west Wicklow. These are usually combined to make a fine walk, that involves crossing large tracts of high level exposed bog. In this route I focussed only on Seefin to create a relatively short circuit that visits the summit and returns via forestry and forestry tracks to the south of the hill. The final section is back along a minor road that should be quiet in the early morning. Seefin is remarkable in that it has a summit burial cairn that was opened and never resealed by some long gone archaeologists. The adventurous like to squeeze into its narrow opening, and along its short corridor before emerging by climbing up through the open roof. So if you're short of time and can't complete a full Kilbride circuit, this walk is a handy way to see Seefin without returning by the same route. On the descent there are some fallen trees to duck under on the forest track. These have reflective tape on them, which means they're part of a course for the army, mountain-bikers or scramblers.
