This walk starts from Ballinastoe Wood (Bl'Stoe Wd) which has MTB routes and some car parking. Unlike many a walk using the main forest roads from here it takes an ingenious route towards White Hill. At times it wends its way through areas recently felled as of 2021 but nevertheless is easily walkable. Getting to some height allowed views to the south. In the picture there are the Croaghans (Croaghan Moira to the right skyline and Croghan Kinsella, left skyline) which are nearly at the furthest southern reaches of the Wicklow Mountains. The mist makes the places look much further than they are.
The route avoids the obvious bored-walk route over White Hill and up to Djouce. Eventually it reaches the top. Being a club walk we have photographed the walk photograph.
The route goes down into the Glensoulan valley with its bridge and then follows an unconventional route onto Maulin. The good lighting if not great clarity allowed the view above of the Great Sugarloaf. It is easy to see the huge quarry just to the west of it.
