Paths very well maintained, with a beautiful landscape.

Tough inclines as it starts but the views are rewarding..the inclines at around 8k mark get quite steep and technical, but from there on the trail is undulating that allows you to conserve energy..would definitely recommend..watch out for traffic towards the end of the trail though..

Breathtaking views of Dublin on a clear day.

really enjoyed this trail!

I would say there was more walking than hike. But it was worth doing it. Amazingly beautiful view from top.

A nice easy hike and a good one to prepare for longer and steeper climbs

Tried to follow the trail in the map given on app which didn't work put well at all. wouldn't go back. seems like it's an easy walk but gave up trying to figure out which trail I should.take so turned back and left.

Great trail with awesome views over the Dublin city. Many photo opportunities. Can be combined and mixed with another trails around. Dogs friendly.

great walk. rocky at times definitely bring a walking stick.

Very nice hike until the road part starts at the end, which is about 2-3 miles, no sidewalks and fair amount of car traffic. Ruined the entire hike imho

Tough running route, 5-20km. Plenty of steep and gradual inclines on different terrains with different views at every turn.

Easy walk nothing moderate about it. Great views at the top with plenty of area for exploring and a picnic if ya like. Timbertrove close by does a savage tea and scone after.

Agree with all the remarks about there being too many roads without sidewalks... otherwise the trails themselves are great

This should be rated as ‘easy’ as i don’t think it’s a moderate hike. It’s more of a walk than a hike and it’s ideal for a family with small kids as a day out. Did it yesterday bt was disappointed with the level of ‘moderate’ so headed off to the sugarloaf for a bit of a hike!

Stunning views of Dublin bay from the top..cool history too

Really great trail with amazing views. Ran into some deer crossing the trail in the mountains as well. The recommended detours are also very worth it. Be careful on the last stretch of road (Tibradden road) however. Cars tend to speed more than they should and there are many turns with very bad visibility.

The view on the top is beautiful

I love Dublin Mountains. This trail was amazing, all the different landscapes, tombs, water streams, forests...everything!

fab place... it was my first time out hiking in yrs ... Great one to start off with... and with a little bit of spooky added in

great hike with the dog best to keep them on a leash sometimes horses are in the area

beautiful walk also in winter. no walking skills required

Nice views!! Only be prepare for rocky downhills in some parts!! Anyways I definitely recommend it!!❤️☘️

The city views are nice in the first hour but the best part is after the traffic noise from the m50 subsides. I was actually shocked how audible it was and for how far. I would also add a word of caution for the very last stretch is on a main road with no foot path. I found that very stressful especially with a dog in tow. When you’re in the middle though it is spectacular. I would do it again, maybe figure out a different way of getting back. I did it in five hours including two stops for a cuppa! one of which was in a lovely cafe just before the precarious bit of road.

did the whole trail this august, a marvelous trail for those who want to see something else than tourists !!! Great walk, it took me 6 hours to do it and take my time to apreciate the sightseeing and meet otherwalkers !!

An easy trail, good for trail runners. You can see most of the city on a sunny day. It's very easy to get to from the city. Timbertrove càfe is lovely for a nice coffee or lunch after your hike.

Amazing hike! loved it!

Very close to Dublin city. If you’re looking for a short walk close do Dublin, this place is perfect.
