Christmas Walk in Wicklow
Mark the end of 2013 by walking with us in the Wicklow hills. Why wait for January 1st to put all those New Year’s resolutions into action. Get ahead of the rest, blow those cobwebs away, join us for a refreshing and inspiring day out in Glendalough, and bid farewell to 2013 with a glass of mulled wine or hot chocolate and mince pie.
Explore some of the lesser known paths around the Glendalough Valley, making for a quiet day in the hills. The ideal remedy, to all that Christmas over indulgence.
Our walk begins at the Brockagh Centre in Laragh.
From the Brockagh Centre our walk takes us out into Brockagh Forest where we will explore some of the ruins of the old Brockagh Village and continue onto the summit of Brockagh Mountain (470m) from a northerly direction, where we will have some fantastic views of the surrounding countryside and out onto the Irish Sea if the day is clear.
Our descent is along the spur of the mountain to join an old Bog Road which leads us into the Valley of Glendasan ( the valley of the Sorrel).
Here we will join what is known as the Grey Trail that will lead us across the lower slopes of Camaderry Mountain and into the Valley of Glendalough, finishing back at the Brockagh centre, where a hot glass of mulled wine and a mince pie will be waiting for you. Enjoy you will have earned a little indulgence.
