Maulin – Powerscourt Waterfall – loop walk
Walking time: Approx 3hrs, Distance: 8Km. Ascent: 410m
Terrain: Open mountain trails and forest track.
About The Walk: Starting from the Car Park in Crone wood. We will join the Wicklow Way through a forested track and out onto the side of Ireland’s highest Waterfall “Powerscourt Waterfall“.
Following the trail up and along side this waterfall we come out to an opening at the Dargle valley. We then cross an old stone wall and onto a path leading up to the top of Maulin, where we can stop for some lunch.
From here we will follow a ridge in an easterly direction towards a dry stone wall and follow this back down towards the forest. Once we are in the woods we take some easy trails over looking the Raven’s Glen and back to the start of the walk.
Along the way we will have excellent views across all of the Dublin Wicklow Mountains and the east coastline from the Mournes to Wexford can also be seen from here.
The man-made features in this beautiful part of Wicklow – dry stone walls, romantic little cottages, fields bearing the marks of long gone potato ridges.
