Peak, Pigs, Fairies and Frame This hill stroll starts from Rathmichael Wood car park. There's two parts, a longer higher part that goes uphill and works its way to the top of Carrickgollogan and a shorter part that visit the rath of Rathmichael Hill to the NE of the car park. The route goes uphill towards the lead mines chimney and the goes south past the other carpark eventually arriving at the granite lump that is Carrickgollogan hill. For variety on the way north and back we took a couple of excursions to the east including a path that went past a small pig farm.
Eventually you reach the road again and can get back easily to the car park for part 2 of the walk which circles the rath.
In passing you will encounter an unusual ornament entitled "dlr framed views". dlr is Dun Laoghaire Rathdown but what exactly the view is wasn't clear to us since it appear to frame a fairly nondescript piece of the outer suburbs not quite centred on Killiney Hill. But hey, what do we know about art .. we don't like Tracy Emin either. The route wends its way back to the car park.
