Similar to to "White" route but a little bit shorter. Great views, many photo opportunities. Dogs friendly.

Did this hike with my Daughter and Sister and Brother in-law, it was beautiful, mind blowing views and the flora and fauna was so beautiful. From mountain goats to Deer we saw it all. What an amazing hike.

Good gradual and continuous climb with great panorama views of the glacial valley and two lakes.

great trail but Instead of starting at the water fall and having to to climb the boardwalk steps we walked to the upper lake turned right and started the wall walk there ascending up through miners road. tough climb but it's quite rocky so easier to go up than down.. this will bring you right around the spinc and to the boardwalk and then descend the steps back to start!

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.

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

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

We went counter clockwise around the lake and were glad we did. Amazing views of the lakes in the valley! It was dry at the bottom but walking along the ridge at the top it rained a lot. It is Ireland afterall, so we were prepared with rain gear and still had a great hike.
