THE DERRYBAWN RIDGE MULLACOR AND THE SPINC, GLENDALOUGH
(Moderate Hike level)
WE will meet at the Glendalough visitor centre. We will hike across the river and onwards up through the forest to the Derrybawn ridge, which in turn leads us towards our high point of the day Mullacor, at 657m. Here we will have stunning views of valleys and the surrounding mountains and some amazing heathers and other flora. .Depending on the weather we will continue on back down via the Spinc and its boardwalk overlooking the Glendalough lakes and valley. Or we can return down through the forest trails. Either way we will pass the amazing Poulanass waterfall on the way back to our finish.
To get to Glendalough from Dublin take the N11 heading south. Turn off at Kilmacanogue, (R775), and head for Roundwood. Go through Roundwood, then Annamoe and on to Laragh, continue straight on to Glendalough, which is well signposted, and park in the visitor centre car park.
