Glendalough - Brockagh mountain loop 12km/5h30
Sat 11 February 2017, 09:30 – 15:00 GMT
For those of you who are looking for a moderate walk, this is it.
Brockagh Mountain is north of Glendalough car park. The meeting point for the walk is at the entrance of the Glendalough visitor centre at 9.45am, starting the walk at 10am sharp. Much less walked than the spink further west, it is accessible and very enjoyable.
12.2 km +451 m
We will join part of the Wicklow Way for a bit to gain some altitude gently, then head South West to Brockagh SE and Brockagh Mountain. That should be the difficult part done. We will then head east downward to a nice forest track to come back on the Wicklow Way and back to our starting point.
Book your place today for the small fee of €10 which will go to Charity. The closing date for booking is the 10th February.
There is no specific difficulty, it is a great way to start hitting the mountain areas and walk on dirt tracks and across typical Irish mountain landscape.
