In olden days Mass Paths were the most direct routes to and from the local churchs. This path leads south from Blackrock up and over the side of Lugnagun to the lovely old stone church at Lacken.
The enterance to the path is marked clearly on a latch gate just off the road to the left of Richardson's old shop in Lacken. It follows a definite path with old stone built walls on both sides, separating the fields.
This is a permissive path and dogs MUST be kept on a lead at all times. During lambing season, up to the 1st. May each year, no dogs are allowed.
The surface of the path is reasonably even. At the kissing-gate entry to the open field, leading to the forestry, the ground is a bit soggy during wet weather. Also, at the top of the open field a rudimentary field drain leaks runoff water down the field slope. While following the marker posts it is best to keep slightly to the left of the sodden ground.
The rest of the path up towards the forest boundary is well defined if a little uneven in places. The walk back down to Lacken has the most wonderful views out over Blessington Lake.

NOTE: ALL information such as Ascent, Length and Creator time taken etc should be regarded as approximate. The creator's comments are opinions and may not be accurate or still correct.
Your time to complete will depend on your speed plus break time and your mode of transport. For walkers: Naismith's rule, an approximate though often inaccurate estimate, suggests a time of 0h 39m + time stopped for breaks
NOTE: It is up to you to ensure that your route is appropriate for you and your party to follow bearing in mind all factors such as safety, weather conditions, experience and access permission.
