simon3: Track 4656 in area near Wicklow (Ireland)
Circuit of Kelly's Lough
Length: 19.6km, Creator time taken: 6h37m, Ascent: 776m,
Descent: 784m

Places: Start at T1065990867, Corrigasleggaun, end at Start
Logged as completed by 1

The purpose of this trip was to add to existing surveying for various places east of Lugnaquilla.
The route starts and ends at Glenmalure Lodge. (At most times of the year you can use this carpark except when they are busy. At all times of the year you should buy food and drink there -- it is pure ignorance to see someone with a camper van brewing up there as I saw on this occasion.)
Mostly avoiding roads the route goes up Carrawaystick via various waymarked tracks and bored walks.
You can escape from the walk from the south of Kelly's Lough though watch out for steep ground. Head for a track end at T062 910.
Above Kelly's Lough is Carrawaystick. To its left is forestry with the return track.

Start the return via the track end as described.
There is one big shortcut taken on this route which is at T08934 90905 which allows dropping from one track to another and so cutting out considerable track walking. There is a small cairn marking the start of this. The actual track through the forest as of 2022 was hard to discern. The surface of the ground with roots and rocks was slippery due to condensation.

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 5h 13m + 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.
