Event description

Description

Our Full Moon Challenge Hike has been very popular in the past. It is also very exciting taking on this night hike for many reasons. Lugnaquilla Mountain is the highest mountain in the Wicklow Mountain Range and perfect for anyone looking for a challenge.

We will meet at Baravore car park at 4pm just in front of the memorial stone. This was erected to the Rebellion of 1798. As we walk across the river and walk parallel to this river. You will get a chance to view the biggest Glaciated Valley in the British Isle.

As we head up towards the ridge of Lugnaquilla we will pass a cascading river which runs down into the valley below us. Once the ridge is gained we will head for the Summit of Leinsters highest mountain, (1 of 13 Munros). A Munro is a mountain over 3000ft high. The mighty Lugnaquilla stands at 931m above sea level.

Once the summit is gained we will stop for a bite to eat and hopefully the Full Moon will light up the night sky for us. The views all around are spectacular and the star constellations are amazing. Our return route is back the way we came or drop down towards the famous Arts Lough. We will then walk back to the car park, and reflect on taking on the beast of Leinster over a drink or two :-)

A good level of fitness is required, as many people find this hike tough. It is also used as a training hike for people taking on the 4 Peak`s challegne and even Kilimanjaro and more.

Cost: E20 per person.

You will need to bring a pack lunch, water, warm flask, first aid kit and medication if required. Good outdoor clothing is highly reccommended as the weather is unpredictable in the Mountains. A warm hat, gloves, fully charged head torch, a hi-vis vest is optional.
