This walk begins by crossing a small stream near the R115 road that travels to the East of Kippure and the Lough Brays. Following a path or paths worn in the moorland, the route ascends towards high ground overlooking Lough Bray Lower and continues until near the north end of the lake. At that point it leaves the path and passes fairly directly to the Kippure summit over rather featureless moorland with little or nothing in the way of human trampling to be seen, apart from the paved road that is used to service the TV transmission towers. The views from the top are the usual nice Wicklow fare, although in this case one has to walk around the TV masts and huts to take it all in.
