This is a figure of eight walk taking in a lot of forest walking, Djouce via a gully and various ingenious connections.
Early on there is a great view of the waterfall in the Powerscourt Estate.
The waterfall in the Powerscourt Estate made by the Dargle River.

I hope you like walking and climbing in trees because there are plenty of trees on this route.
Cool trees.

This route uses the striking gully that reaches the col between While Hill and Djouce from the south. If you haven't tried this you should - further into the gully there is some scrambling. The gully may well be unusable in rain or standing snow.
The relatively shallow and easy lower end of the gully.

Coming down from Djouce and heading back this was the view on the occasion.
Maulin left skyline, Sugarloaf right with Howth in the haze of the centre.

Unusually we came across a multicoloured tree in the forest.
A gay tree?
Make of it what you will.
