Wicklow Mountains, Ireland
From beginning to end, your journey is measured not in miles, but milestones. On this hike, the top milestone is Mullacor Summit, then, the trail becomes much more difficult!
800 Meters Up! 13 Miles Long - Worth Every Step!
This is a fantastic hike in the Wicklow Mountains. With a total elevation gain of 800 metres (2650') our team will start along the Green Road, then up the Derrybawn to the Mullacor Summit. This is where we leave the trail behind and continue on to the Lugduff and Corrig Hills. The combination steep ascents and descents, the varied conditions underfoot of the on and off trail terraine, along with the weather typical of Ireland in October, this promises to be a challenging 13+ mile adventure for even the most seasoned hikers.
600 Meters Up! 9 Miles Long - Worth Every Step!
A bit shorter, but no less challenging hike is a 9.3 mile (2050' ascent) trail that splits off at Lugduff Gap to a boardwalked trail along the hanging granite cliffs named the Spinc. A steep descent through a dense forest culminates at Poulanass Waterfall. There are the added bonus of exploring the Monastic Centre with its tower that was build in the 800's, its ancient graveyard, beautiful surrounding park, lakeside trails and boardwalks.
This is a full day adventure in one of central Ireland's world famous Wicklow Mountains National Park. As with all Team Diabetes and iConquer hiking adventures, there is a walk or hike for everybody!
