simon3: Track 4429 in area near Dublin (Ireland)
Another Lockdown Variation in the Dublin Mtns.
Length: 16.7km, Creator time taken: 5h19m, Ascent: 484m,
Descent: 512m

Places: Start at O18326 24732, end at Start
Logged as completed by 1

This particular variation starts from the Fernhill carpark. This has been recently opened and is well positioned for Dublin Mtns walks. The carpark was around half full by 9:30 am on a weekday. I would expect a major problem with using it will be popularity.
The route took in the rough largely untracked land of Ballybrack midway between Fairy Castle/ Two Rock and the Ballybrack Road which goes to Glencullen. While perfectly feasible, the first km or so is over land that in winter at least is extremely wet.
The walk went past the GAP for the morning coffee and back via the "Paddocks" route to Barnacullia.

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 4h 8m + 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.
