Trying to complete these 4 summits always seems daunting - do you park the car at the Gap and do an "over and back", what about a break-in??. Anyway parked at the school in Lacken and started walking up to Ballynultagh Gap. Realised this would really prolong my day so started to hitch and was picked up by a really nice fella going up to the Gap for some paragliding! Made the day easier I tell you. Sorrel Hill is up and down then onto Black Hill and Monbane and Silsean. Returning to Lake Road is a little daunting with so many houses but aim for the picnic tables at the car park - only 2 fences, the rest are gates. Walking back to Lacken, managed again to hitch a lift from 2 guys going up to the Gap to film the views for a promotional video on a new Wicklow Greenway. Saved 3kms and had a great chat!.

Your time to complete will depend on your speed plus break time and your mode of transport. For walkers: Naismith's rule, a rough and often inaccurate estimate, suggests a time of 3h 50m + time stopped for breaks
