This short walk is a great favourite for many in the Dublin area. Start from the carpark on the L1031, a minor road from the Kilmaconogue to Roundwood road. The walk will take around 90 minutes. There are great views from the top both towards the sea and also towards west Wicklow summits such as Djouce.

It is possible to go about 500m further north to a spur if you wish to.
