lovely walk with kids

Beautiful Forrest, walked the yellow trail,looking forward to trying out the others.

I just completed the route and it is not far off 17km you can make it longer than the map if you want. To confirm it's Bray-Greystones and back. Great walk I went on a cold windy day and still amazing.

Such a beautiful trail and fairly easy. We went Greystones to Bray.

I went Graystones to Bray and feel like I would have preferred the other way (maybe it’s named Bray to Graystones for a reason :) Most of the pictures I took were behind me. Nice, wide, well-maintained path. I’m a fairly fast walker and it took 2 hours, with lots of picture stops. I even got video of a train entering the tunnel midway where the cliffs are the best for pics.

Lovely walk with great scenery. I did it last summer in glorious sunshine. Easily managed by most people. There is a slight incline at the beginning, it’s flat from there on, 6.5km each way. Lots of places in Greystones to lunch and if you aren’t up to the return journey you can avail of the train to return to Bray.
In 1 or 2 spots the path had narrowed to just space for 1 person but nothing a good hedge trimmer can’t sort.

Easy and pleasant trail. Somewhat crowded.

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.

fab walk but can be busy

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

lovely and easy walking

Moderate trail to two forests the Kindlestown forest (we just did a small loop there, the trail is much bigger) and Glen of the Downs.
Plenty of shade in the forest parts.
the way back to greystones is on the road so be careful

easy with amazing view

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.

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/

Wonderfull views & the winds felt amazing. Short but intense a great way to get warmed up for the other Wicklow Trails.

I love this walk and do it as often as possible.

Had not done this for years.... but it was well worth it again..
But OMG the wind, that and the scenery took my breath away.

I found it quite difficult the climb up . We went off trail a bit by mistake . Beautiful views and breakfast in Enniskerry afterwards was excellent .
