Kilmashogue Forest to Crone Woods

 
Hike Description:
 
The hike from Kilmashogue forest at O150,244 is just over of 18km.
 
The route follows a very well worn forest road from the car park up to the bend in the road at O163,229. Great views of South Dublin can be had as you walk along the higher slopes.
 
From here, it is mainly grass track until it rejoins the forest road.
 
Care is needed while walking on the road from O160,211 until the minor road junction at O174,207 as this is a well used road into Glencullen.
At only 1.5km, these 20 minutes should pass quite quickly. This is the busiest road that this route takes you on.
 
Leaving the road, the route takes you up towards Prince William's Seat before you leave Dublin at O182,184.
 
For those with Sat Nav - W6.23123032, N53.2039898
 
Entering Wicklow, your path takes you through the forest and back on to the roads around Knockree.
 
While some might be tempted to stay on the road rather than go through the forest from O180,150 to O189,150, the road is longer and not as enjoyable.
 
Following the path from O189,150 to the river and then along Glencree river itself to the footbridge at O181,146 will bring you to the road where a left turn and 500m will bring you to the end of your hike.
