Great Trail with nice views. Very well maintained and easy to hike.
Caught a windy and rainy day and still it was fun.

did the walk from greystones to bray, which is better as you get a better view arriving at bray than greystones. pretty flat trail with an amazing view of the coast, quite quick, around 1h30, can be done in an hour if you are a fast walker and dont stop for pictures.

Lovely walk on a Saturday morning.

Clear day when I got to the top. Great views.

Really nice day walk.

Great walk but be prepared for a big difference in weather from bottom to top. Parking can be difficult at the zig zags.

Not a fantastic trail in my opinion. Alternated between mud and rock. Fair bit of traffic noise from the M11. Gets very busy near the easier short loop. Steep scramble at some points.

Excellent walk. Stunning view.

Challenging going up, mainly because it’s so constant. Even after the zig zags, you’re continually moving up. Great views near the top. Cloud cover at the summit despite the weather being decent. Rewarding climb overall.

lovely and easy walking

I was lucky as I had a brilliant and dry day for this magnificent hike! Getting up early was worth it. Started the hike around 8am and walked it from the Miners Road which I recommend because you’ll have the best part in front, rather than behind you. I came across a few goats, stags and a lot of deer. It was beautiful! Will definitely do it again.

Very enjoyable hike and a treasure of a park, less than an hour away from Dublin. Some trails are better marked than others, but manageable terrain either way. If you use the coordinates that AllTrails offers to find the park, it will bring you to the entrance, where I began my hike. If you keep going on the road slightly right of here though, it will bring you to the other car park (which I realized well into my hike). This brings you closer to the river and cliff trails. From the cliff trail, you can easily access the other trails that meander through the interior of the park. Great variety of both scenery and sounds on this hike. Highly recommend!
To note: I had to stop the recording of my hike a bit early as my phone was low on battery, but as you’ll see from the map, it was fairly easy to loop back to where I began.
Enjoy!

Lovely trail with diverse views of landscapes including Powers Court Waterfall, the Sugarloaf and some other hills and valleys. Clockwise is easier. Counter clockwise for those who want to work up a sweat.

Nice trail with a wide diversity of landscapes
start on the lower part, following the lake. It will be easier and more interesting. You'll also not start with 1000 steps to go straight to the upper part and you'll have better views.

A great walk.

Absolutely brilliant.. Glovea and hats needed on the top as wind and dropped temp you can feel

This trail passes through a Artillery range, DO Not pick up, disturb anything on the ground, report it to the Military range office at trailhead.

3hr walk with kids. Mountain side overlooking a ‘bowl’ style valley containing one of the country’s most popular attractions. While Crone overlooks this vista, the forest insulates the walker - offering tantalizing glimpses through forest cuts - until the view is revealed spectacularly after about 25 mins. Mixed deciduous and evergreen forest, generally mossy with pine needle covered undergrowth. The climb continues to a zig-zag mountain walk as forest drops away. Cutting across beneath the summit of Maulin along the top edge of Crone forest, there is protection from any possible colder weather and wind for the return to the car park through the forest. The zig-zag return can be shortened by following the more direct and rugged downhill paths that cut straight through the forest. While an exertion at some parts, young family members were more than capable. Coillte forest roadways are in good condition. Arguably (although not necessarily advised as it’s a couple of hours uphill) passable by large wheeled buggy with only a handful of points where it would need to be briefly carried across obstacles (on a revisit, realized 25 min duration climb to highest point of walk is very steep and quite rocky so not suitable for buggy really). Will break sweat during uphill of first half of the walk. Plenty of attractive points to stop and take a break. Recommended as a longer family walk (over 7 km). https://www.coillte.ie/site/crone-woods/

Brilliant hike. Ancient church ruins and graveyard, hill climb in well maintained wooded paths, high open terrain with plunging and rocky views, ruined mine works, rocky stream, pretty lakes, leafy flat woodsy stroll, and boardwalk around enclosed meadows.
