About The Walk:
This is one of the finest walks in the Wicklow hills with incredible views across the valleys of Glendalough and Glendasan. It also overlooks the Wicklow Gap and the small town of Laragh where the walk starts. From Lyhnams we cross over to the small petrol and in behind it to join a small forested track and part of the Wicklow Way which will bring up onto the side of Brockagh East. Passing through a field with a small grassy trail we follow this to the summit of this small hill. Here we can stop and enjoy a bite to eat and enjoy the 360 panoramic view before making our descent.
We will be stopping for a bite to eat along the way so bring a packed lunch.
