It has become overgrown with spikes gorse that scratches your legs the whole entire way - the track has washed out a few times and there’s some parts that were pure marsh a few km in and it’s 25 degrees in the day we did it so not a rainy Irish day - someone has intentionally put monkey puzzle trees every few hundred meters across the trail to stop people entering. This is the only explanation as there are no other felled trees any where but dragged onto the trail. Ended up cutting it half way back out onto road and cutting the 5k back along the road to my car. Joke of a hike - very poorly maintained trail. The first km is a great track that’s wide and maintained then it just goes to hell.

Ma 3eme rando ici en Irlande, et sans hésitation arrive sur le podium! ;) Complète et magnifique : faune, flore et sensation d'être seul au monde, tout y est! Mais qu'on le précise, si elle est classée difficile c'est pas pour rien! Physique pour sûr! mais pas insurmontable si vous avez un peu de sportivité et de combativité. La où la difficulté passe un cap, c'est le terrain! chaussures hautes prenant bien la cheville, et echauffement des chevilles sur le parking pour les plus vieux d'entre nous! tres bon exercice de proprioception cela-dit.. Le reste : SPLENDIDE, du debut a la fin.. en commencant bien sur par les moutons a slalomer sur la route :D Profitez!!!

Nice trail suitable for hiking and mountain bikes. Very clean and pleasant, nice start to the Wicklow way trail. The only thing is that it can get slippery at the descent, so wear proper footwear for hiking.

The very first trail we have done on alltrails.com We did not follow the route exactly as on the map here, but it was enough as for the first time hiking. Amazing views and a very difficult way down by stairs. It was a challenge for all family. As realised later - we have chosen a red trail. Such as enthusiastic newbies!! No regrets of choosing this trail anyway!

Beautiful and easy walk. I came here during a day tour from Dublin. The scenery in the upper lake is very beautiful.

Lovely walk in May

Good trail. Easy to follow and navigate. Terrain quite rough. Mostly boggy. Nice views.

It took a little over three hours on a very windy day in May. The ascent up Tonelagee is quite exposed (clockwise), and I took a beating from the wind on the way up. Well worth it when you get to the top though. The top section before the trig stone is a cool mix of peat hags and exposed gravel and I would have done a bit more exploring if the wind wasnt pushing me over! The trail, for the most part, is easy to follow but you can loose sight of it in some parts. I breezed past the turn to head back towards Lough Ouler and had to do some boggy bushwhacking to get back on track. The sections along the river are still very waterlogged (May) so boots are a must and I would have loved a dry pair of trousers to change into when I got back to the car. I was out early and saw loads of deer, a peregrine falcon (I think) and even an otter! Well worth the drive and I'll be heading back.

took a different route this morning 7th May but within the park itself. Please note that access to the park is for local residents still due to Covid-19 with car parks locked, however a pleasant walk within a well maintained park (and much cleaner since there are less visitors who don't use bins provided!)

nice easy walk with some nice views..

great trail got a nice day for it too. I would imagine it's very mucky when wet. pack a lunch too , so glad I did !
