Hiked from Bray - took about an hour and 20 min. Last 20 min was through construction so I elected to train it back to Bray. Good running trail

Neat little walk up without any difficulty. Started on a road by the pub and then walked through farmland. Headed up and over Camarahill and stayed on the shoulder to the right of the peak. It was nice a chilly at the top and made me appreciate having extra layers. I was lucky and the rain was all on the peaks north of me. Nice 3 hour round trip and a good way to finish my Irish vacation.

Easy stroll around lower lake starting at St Kevin’s Monastic City ruins.

I did this trail with a few other guys, and it was great. The views were phenomenal!

Just go and enjoy the nature with each step. don't forget about comfy clothes, shoes.

one of my most favourite place in Ireland. Just prepare comfortable shoes and enjoy the nature. You will love there

good hike. no trail posts but the path is worn. I came down off the path following the trail already on this app. but I wouldn't recommended. into scrub and bush and uneven ground. stay on the path that presumably brings you back to the road..

Excellent walk. Cliff climb beside the waterfall is tough. No marked trail but you can find your way. I would not recommend doing this walk in misty or poor conditions if you have not done before

Tough hike with the cliff climb. On a clear day it’s wonderful

Lovely quiet hike, long with some challenging terrain, if the cloud is down, knowing how to use a map and compass is essential.

Excellent trail with stunning views. the loop does not take you to Maulin head but so worth it. Steep but short ish climb. Continued walking over to meet the Wicklow way track and to the Dargle river. such stunning views. would do again..

Nice little handy one lads with parking available.

great trail. best views are if you walk the miners trail out.

Great scenic trail and wonderful alternatives to mellow it down or increase intensity . I found the blue trail the best and the loop walked counter clock wise early I. The morning you find barely nobody and you can handle ‘heights’ better lol

We did the river walk it was great! It s 5 km we stopped a few times along the way and took us 1,5 hours. Only negative, no facilities not even at the car park, bring water food and wipes

Would very much recommend this. Very little signage so keep an eye on trail and can easily drift off .

Really enjoyed this. Please note - this is NOT an 'Easy' hike in the slightest and has been miscategorised above - it is at a minimum Moderate, or Moderate to Hard. Trails are not marked at all in many places so you need to know where you're going, involves a lot of wading through gorse, holes etc - but well worth it! You'll also need to get your shoes off to wade through the shallow river near the end. Took 5 - 6 hours with a stop for lunch. Highly recommended!

if taking the trail from the cross towards Greystone there is a new gate that shows how to get on the lower path (a bit of rock climbing involved)

Not so much a hike as a nice scenic walk. Busy on sunny days. Not challenging but good for a Sunday stroll.

difficult to find the starting point and the first bit of the trail. Stunning views of the lake and Tonalegee. Boggy at the end so we went on the road.

Beautiful scenery, saw a baby deer, fabulous place, great for families. Not to be missed but kids might find some of the ascent hard after the miners’ village

This trail is gorgeous and easy to do. However, it is not fun when it’s overrun with unprepared tourist, who, at narrow areas, refuse to go single-file. At times, you’ll find the trail covered with rubbish and dog waste. Many people arrive dressed unprepared, causing traffic jams as they try to navigate puddles of muddy water, without touching it with their new trainers. This is an amazing site, and a great experience - but if you are looking for a hike for zen; this isn’t it.

This is a jewel! It’s a little hard to get to the lake but not too difficult. I went with 2 teenage sons. Our only regret was that we started out too late in the day and stopped at the lake. We will definitely return to do the summit. Absolutely beautiful scenery. Hard to leave it.

Takes about 45 mins to ascend, depending on who’s with you. Ideal to do with kids. Glorious views.

This is quite long and narrow, a good one to bring kids on but not buggies or bikes.

adorable hiking with a quite good view.
