[RWD version 1 ] This is a pleasant circuit of the Feather Bed area, starting from the car park at the Reconciliation Centre in Glencree. The trail follows old turf cutting tracks and requires a crossing of the upper reaches of the Glencree river at O14088 18792, which is generally very easy. A Mass Path leads to the county boundary on the ridge between Glencree and Glencullen and t here's a clear path all the way over Glendoo Mountain and around to the R115 road via a Bullaun Stone at O12872 20381. A short walk along the R115 leads to the Bog Road towards Kippure (on the right). A left turn at O13045 18971 brings the walker onto a lesser bog road, which almost peters out in the last 100 metres but which with a bit of clambering over heather will rejoin the R115 opposite the entrance to the quarry. In August/September the walker will often encounter hives of Olly's Bees from Glenasmole who are transported onto the bog while the heather is in bloom.
