This is an easy enough walk, and was at a leisurley pace for fit walkers with plenty of stops.

From Glendalough Upper lake car park, follow the Wicklow Way up to Pollanass Waterfall. At the bridge above the waterfall, follow the Wicklow Way left to walk north-northeast. You will soon get wonderful views over the upper Lake. Take the first right hand junction to follow the Wicklow Way south. After .5 km leave the road and turn left to start the easterly ascent of Derrybawn. From Derrybawn, follow the ridge south-southeast until you reach the fence marking the edge of the Wicklow Mtns National Park. From here follow the fence West to Mullacor, then northwest onto Lugduff. From Lugduff we went East-northeast to meet the Spink (note this section is over open ground with no tracks and can be wet in parts), and follow the Spink back to Pollanass Waterfall and then back to the car park.

This is a beautiful walk in the most scenic part of Wicklow. Be sure to bring a good camera if walking on a sunny day....
