JohnA: Track 4565 in area near Djouce, Wicklow (Ireland)
Ballinastoe, Djouce, Maulin
Length: 17.4km, Creator time taken: 5h31m, Ascent: 878m,
Descent: 883m

Places: Start at O19453 07768, Djouce, Maulin, end at Start
Logged as completed by 2

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.
Confused but crossable if you follow the route.

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.
Misty view south.

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 Great Sugarloaf, Wicklow.

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.

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 57m + 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.
