[RWD version 1 ] 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. picture 1 for track/4118
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. picture 2 for track/4118
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. picture 3 for track/4118
The relatively shallow and easy lower end of the gully.

Coming down from Djouce and heading back this was the view on the occasion. picture 4 for track/4118
Maulin left skyline, Sugarloaf right with Howth in the haze of the centre.

Unusually we came across a multicoloured tree in the forest. picture 5 for track/4118
A gay tree?
Make of it what you will.
