Break away to the north from the 500m mark and make your way along the cliff top. Cross the river that feeds Lough Tay at 300m (for an especially beautiful river crossing) and make a B line to the peak at Djouce (for a singular view of Wicklow and Dublin). Then follow the boardwalk (sleepers) back to the car park. A long walk but beautiful. Maybe 6 hours all in all with breaks. Tired legs.

We did nice family walk. On half way and we have been stop by one very rude ranger. Walking with river is not allowed. This all is private property. the only paths are the black one on map. do not use thos trail if you dont want to have problems!

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

Went mountain biking. ..great spot easy to reach from Dublin. And the weather made it...It's scenic just get out there and enjoy.

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.

The walk is lovely, but it’s not well explained .. we went from bray to greystone on the cliff walk but after that we couldn’t find the trail - thank goodness a very nice local woman drove us to the bottom of the peak, we walked from the there to the top & then back to Bray.

Walked to Lough Dan first and then hiked up the mountain to see the Lough Tay views.
Nice hike but can be challenging if it rains !
Improvements needed to make the trail clearly visible as we lost our way a few times. In poorer weather conditions it could be dangerous !

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 .

Amazing views especially in good weather with a nice breeze along the ridge. Really enjoyed it.

Great climb, moderately challenging, more difficult if the weather was poor (we had great weather). Fabulous views of Lough Tay from the top. Easy descent. Highly recommended.

Great walked with a 12 and 13 year old. Took 1.45hrs

Beautifull nature, only thing that is missing are marked trails

Great hike with lovely views. We went clockwise and loved the views, easy enough with a couple of tough spots.
Highly recommended.

Great walk for the family. My kids are 8,10 and 12 and they all enjoyed it. I think clockwise is the best way to do it. Although the descent is steep. We loved it. The dog also loved it.

Good trail, great climb. The first offroad climb (around 1.8k from start) is overgrown and impossible to take in either direction (up or down). Stay on the fire road instead until the second offroad climb (around 3.5k from start). The 3rd offroad climb (around 5k from start) there's no trail, so you need to stay in course (a compass would help), which is West. Keep going for about 1.5k Once you reach the top, you will have to keep going for about 2.5k before you enter into private land. Everything after that is private land, with sheep grassing. If you're running with a dog keeping it 100% of time on lead - there is wild deer and grassing sheep from 5k until 12.5k

such an amazing trail to do, I would recommend to do the opposite going first to Greystones using public transport and then going to Bray...

Lovely views , went up with a 2 year old , well worth a hike

Walked from the carpark through the grave yard. Did the blue route-met very few hikers along this route until we reached the lough so perhaps not ideal for the lone walker from a saftey perspective, plenty of equally as good trials to choose from. Very enjoyable hike, tough given the humidity on the day. Good distance with steep steps toward the peek. The views and landscape are amoung the best in Ireland.

This is a great walk with incredible views and steeped in history. I personally would have enjoyed it more without all the boardwalk and gravel trail but I understand the desire to make it more accessible for tourism.

lovely easy walk.

Lovely walk... super busy though on a Sunday.

Beautifull walk, breathtaking views and not very difficult so perfecf for relaxing sunday

Stunning views. Worth the hike!

Spectacular views and fabulous weather.Gets very busy as the day progresses. I couldn’t believe the amount of people who wear flip flops on this walk, you need good footwear for this walk.

Fun. The board tracks take time getting used to but they are necessary for wet conditions I’m sure

I believe this is far from a moderate climb. The description is accurate to a point but the last climb to the summit is hard to follow and very steep. The path appears to be non existent. Likewise the initial decent down from the summit to the waterfall crossing is without a path and a steep decline through frog invested marshland.

If you fancy a little bit of structure together with some “off the beaten track”, this will suit you. I wouldn’t recommend though. There are a lot more scenic and pleasant routes to follow to get on top of Lug.

Very nice trail, amazing views, yellow flowers fields in spring, I prefer to start in Greystones and walk to Bray

Beautiful sight but pretty long
