simon3: Track 4556 in area near Stoney Top, Wicklow (Ireland)
Straightforward way of visiting the Tonelagee and Mullaghcleevaun areas.
Length: 15.1km, Creator time taken: 5h 3m, Ascent: 587m,
Descent: 587m

Places: Start at O11312 03018, Stoney Top, Mullaghcleevaun East Top, end at Start

The starting place "GlMacnass" is at the car park at Glenmacnass. Be aware that this carpark is notorious for breakins. Also, when setting out inspect the level of the river. If it is uncrossable or becoming so, take account of this.
Despite the title, the walk as actually done didn't reach either Tonelagee or Mullaghcleevaun though it could easily be extended to reach both.
The way up via the north side of Lough Ouler is relatively easy with a continuous but not over demanding gradient. Underfoot this is likely to be somewhat boggy after a lot of rain but as of early Sept it was ok
Barnacullian, the ridge between Stoney Top and Mullaghcleevaun, is composed of exposed decaying bog. This route avoids some of the worst of it.
The route through the trees to the south of Carrigshouk is useful because it connects to the side of the Glenmacnass River. It is possible to walk on either side of this river. Be aware that after heavy rain the river can flood and become uncrossable. This would be particularly relevant were you to do the walk in reverse.

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 0m + 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.
