This track is accessable by public transport. Starting at Lehaunstown Luas Stop (spelled Laughanstown by Luas), head south on a quiet country lane, past the high crosses and the ruins of Tully Church, over M50 Motorway to Heronsford Lane. (For a shorter hike, one could go straight ahead at this point.) We turned left onto Rathmichael Road. After 500 m, turn right into Rathmichael Lane and past Rathmichael Cemetary. After that, it seems to be a private road and, at one point, we needed to divert through a field for 200 m. We joined the Dublin Mountain Way at O 234 212, but could have joined it 700 m earlier at O 239 216. This led us to Pucks Castle Lane which we used to access Carrickgollogan, then headed north-east to the Lead Mines Chimney, and then through Barnaslingan Wood to the finishing point at The Scalp on Enniskerry Road. From there, take 44 bus coming from Enniskerry towards Dundrum, or walk 2km to Kilternan where there is the additional option of 63 bus, its terminus being at the "Blue Church".
