Easy enough climb until the very end. Hiking shoes a must and rain gear as there is no shade. Fabulous views of Dublin Bay at the top.

Amazing trail with wonderful maintenance! Pack a snack, plenty of water, and a raincoat. It was very manageable with a slow pace and for someone of good fitness level it would fly by. I recommend starting low in the loop and walking from the car park through the miners camp first and then going up and around.

We went off trail up on the mountains the view was amazing and it was so peaceful up there

First part through the forest, next is rocky but not that hard. When you climb on the top of the hill trail goes on it till the end - views are amazing and path really beautiful but may be little dangerous for children :)

One of my favourite routes in the world.

My favourite trail worldwide so far. Even win over Yosemite to me. A great variety of landscapes and views. Caution the wind can be really strong on the mountain top.

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

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

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

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

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

What an absolute delight. Wildlife everywhere, deer, mountain goats, birds, fantastic.

Great loop trail. Never a dull moment.

Nice short walk suit all levels. family's will enjoy this nice little Intro to trail walking. Views of Dublin Bay and surrounding areas are a delight when weather allows.

Completed in fantastic weather with my 15 month old in a child carrier backpack. After the first climbing section with the sleepers it mellowed out. Baby loved the sounds and all the people to smile at.

Its a relatively short and offers great 360 views from the top... hills and country and ocean views. Free parking down below. we didnt want to take our kiddos up the least little bit to the very top because it gets quiet a bit steeper and there is a lot of loose rock.

Great trail

Done the Spinc today for the 1st time ever. Savage views and it was a gorgeous sunny day too.

nice boardwalk walk . stunning scenery from top

Decent hike. We did it clockwise. There are sleepers all the way up. Lots of easy steps. View at top is great. Going down to river is easy too. After that the descent is a bit rockier... so it just slows you down. Final bit is flat to the car park. Great places for picnic on top or by river. Our dog came with us in lead. Recommend in almost any weather.

Easy hike with nice views! Loved the waterfall and streams.

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

Really nice day walk.

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.
