This is a delightful route that combines easy forest tracks with gruelling waist high heather, steep slopes and hidden boulders. Starting at an almost hidden and overgrown forest track entrance with room for one car. Follow this track before turning right to leave the track and join a rough path. This path handrails the forest to your right and climbs steadily alongside the stone wall separating you from the forest. You are essentially climbing the northern flank of a lovely little glen below Tonduff, complete with a lively waterfall. Watch out for holly trees which seem to be doing well here off the beaten path. The faint path climbs steeply in places with the wall keeping you company. You will soon reach the high point of the wall. Just as it begins to descend turn left and begin a tortuous climb through high heather with hidden boulders beneath. The slope is steep so you get a full workout! soon you emerge on the shoerter heathery slopes of Tonduff and will find a well worn path scarring the landscape. Follow this to the summit before making your way to Maulin. In good weather the route is obvious. In bad weather this is an awful, exposed place to be! After Maulin descend north along a track to pick up the Coillte tracks in the forest below. A meandering saunter along these tracks gets you back to your car. The whole walk is about 4 hours.
