Description of Trail

This walk winds its way through charming little country roads, greenways, narrow lanes bordered with old stone walls, then open mountain and finishes on a well-used path. It takes the walker along the foothills of the Great Sugar Loaf Mountain on what was an original coach road, then climbing through open mountain grazing. As it climbs wonderfully spectacular views open up of Little Sugar Loaf, Bray Head, Carrigoona, Djouce and Maulin as well as the Powerscourt Estate and the Deerpark.
