Please edit title: it is Cruagh not Cruagh! Beautiful trail I regularly walk all times of year as track/stone path always accessible I’ve seen plenty of wildlife in this area, notably pine marten and woodpecker

A nice mainly flat walk as opposed to a hike with a combination of trail and tarmac path but plenty of options in terms of time from 1 hour to 3 hours all within a beautiful park

Lovely walk through the park. Park a raincoat as you can get 4 seasons in one day

Done it few times. Dogs friendly. Good views.

The whole Wicklow way is brilliant whether you’re from Ireland or not this trail is a great one. Taking you through a great variety of areas.

Trail is one of it's best around Dublin. Singletrack shaped to meet moderate skill mountain bikers. Coffee and snacks , bike renting at the car park shop. Close to the city. Well maintained .

It is a beautiful park and we had a great walk. Saw the war Memorial, presidential palace, an old munitions fort, and plenty of trees and flowers. Plus, in the morning we saw a bunch of the famous deer in the park.

Great scenic views, well marked, several paths can be taken. Peaceful hike.

it would be a good trail if it's on track, you can't go through the president house as it's telling me to

Well marked, good walking paths, great views and busy terrain. Keep an eye on your position to make sure you don't cross onto other trails as there are a few trails in the area. Lots of shade so nice and cool on hot days.

very good trail, can be done with any bicycle.

This is a mountain biking trail. Only the paved road sections are suitable for walking. Do not hike down the single track, as bikes will be coming down behind you. On the bike it's good, though would recommend doing the ascent via Tom's Tits and the Eurosceptic trail rather than the access road (follow the red signs). The Metro 2 section from the top is quite rocky, so would require a good mountain bike.

lovely walk but large sections of this route are designated for MTB only! eg Metro 1

I diverted to go on trail to two rock. That's the nice part. The route home is on forest Road.... Not really what I like.

This is not a hiking trial. The fire road accent to the masts is but the decent back to the carpark is single track bike trail and should not be walked. There are so many hiking trails arount this mountain do not walk on cycle tracks.

We started the trail from Kilmashogue instead of Marlay Park. As a newbie hiker, I find the trail is quite manageable and properly marked. The view along the trail is beautiful, especially when we reached Prince William's Seat.
