This is a fantastic and beautiful loop for anyone who wants to get back into trail running after a break, or anyone who is new to running. It is fairly easy with only one short uphill bit. Beautiful views, lush forest. It's 2.2km, so we did it 5 times and it never got boring. :)

Very tough.. I am in pretty good physical fitness and found it challenging but entirely worth it! The last push to the summit I was on my hands and knees scrambling at one point! Would advise walking sticks for the way back down as I fell a few times on the loose rocks, gravel and boulders

Rave run for sure. Gorgeous from start to finish. Make sure you descend to the little beach at low tide. We did this as a trail run. Mostly single track.

Lovely views, great and quick loop to get your heart rate up!

Lovely forest walk along the river. A couple of tricky spots but mostly easy to walk. Famine graveyard on the route is a lovely spot. Well sign posted until the bridge after the hidden valley car park so make sure you have a map of the route.

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.

Fantastic hike with stunning views. Definitely not easy. Good/decent weather is key to this one. Highly recommend proper preparations, i.e. proper footwear, rain or shine clothing, GPS (map tracking), plenty of water, one or two snacks. Also highly recommend hiking poles; we found that they came in very handy and a couple of times they were life saving. Only criticism for this hike is the fact that once one has passed the Devils Punchbowl (Stoompa Peak and beyond) and continues on on the loop the path is no longer obvious and the further one goes becomes non-existent, possibly making the hike a bit treacherous at times. Given this fact and otherwise a leisurely pace with plenty of stops to take in the amazing scenery the whole loop took us just under 7 hours.

Went for a morning bike ride. Following the blue trail markers the climb was horrendous. You would need legs of steel to get up there. I had to hike most of the way. But it was worth it for the views at the top of the trail. The first leg took me about 40 minutes. After a break at the top the descent only took about 10 minutes with practically no peddling on the way down. If your trying to challenge yourself.... this is the place to do it.

Beautiful views with a lovely waterfall at the end of the trial. Hiking shoes needed but an easy walk.

Amazing views but not an easy hike, some scrammbling needed in places.

I went on this hike with one friend in June while traveling Ireland from the United States. It was absolutely gorgeous and completely accessible for strollers and wheelchairs for the majority of the trip. We added a bit on to include the Mining Villiage Ruin and ended up hiking up the waterfall. It was significantly less accessible after the ruins but also insanely beautiful with amazing views. The best way to get close to the waterfall was the third switchback towards it (almost to the top) with a large rock that had looked like people walked there. There was a soft area but it was safe to scramble toward the falls. Good hiking boots are nice to ascend the waterfall as the many rocks are asking for a rolled ankle! This hike was definitely a 5/5 stars!

I would highly recommend this trail.. great views easy goin ground. completed it with my 3 and 7 year olds. child friendly and dog friendly. pretty much a novice at this an found it quite easy going and very rewarding views from the cross at the top. weather was poor strong winds and heavy rain but we were well wrapped up and all enjoyed it.

The view and lake are amazing but I would only recommend it after a dry week or two. The path is very hard to find if there is one at all! You have to cross the river which can be very challenging and the path was super wet so wear good shoes. Would not recommend with kids. But the view is definitely worth the challenge

Absolutely stunning. As a novice hiker, this was definitely the scariest hike I have ever done. Very dangerous with the rock climbing. I couldn't have done it without help. The view was spectacular and very lightly trafficked.

such a great walk, so much to see and so many picturesque places, after 10km you hit torc mountain and straight away you hit a hard climb up 300 meters over rocky terrain but all worth it when you get to the top. I went anti clockwise around muckross lake then hit torc mountain.

views are amazing, bring food if you plan on staying for a few hours, and a dip in the sea is always recommended.

Best climb around. There is a small parking lot at the bottom. Its 6 miles to the top and back. Didn’t see another person the 3 hours we were there. No shade on the climb so wear sunscreen. It was windy and colder at the top so bring a wind breaker. 2200 feet ascent. I was sore the next day.
