Beautiful scenery from every perspective
Sep 2021
We explored the area from the old mining camp, to the Lower Lake, just amazing! There were a couple areas near the mining camp to pull over and park, but we had those areas mostly to ourselves.

Challenging walk with wonderful views
Sep 2021 • Friends
Beautiful scenery on this 10k walk. First part is a winding hilly ascent past the waterfall. Lots of stops to take in the breathtaking scenery. Saw deer too

The decent is challenging so ensure a good pair of boots or walking shoes are worn.

Very busy later on so would get there early to avoid the crowds

Gorgeous place
Jul 2021
I was worried we'd have to hike up to the lovely lakes, but there is a very easy 20-25 minute flattish walk up there. Lovely atmosphere at the lake. Nice to have some food trucks on the way back down for an icecream or cup of tea.

SpincTrail doesn't disappoint
May 2021
Highly recommend the SpincTrail (white hike) for anyone with a few hours on their hands. Beautiful views of the mountains and lakes from above. Just about 10 kms all in there are some steep parts both going up and coming down but well worth the trek.
Plenty of open space and rocks to sit down on for a rest and bring cupa tea and a sandwich and enjoy. Path well marked out, we went on a Saturday morning 11:00am and car park nearly full. Recommend getting here in the morning before crowds converge.

Wicklow mountain drive
Dec 2019 • Friends
A trip to Dublin is incomplete without a drive to Wicklow mountains. Best way to travel is by a car so that you can stop anywhere you want and soak in the delightful sights. Powerscourt waterfalls is a great place to explore. Carry a picnic hamper or else the cafe there has some snacky things to offer. Usually families and pet owners can be seen thronging the place during holiday season and weekends.

Hiking

We went there with a bike and hiking. For a bike, to be honest, the space where you can use it, are to small. For a walking it is amazing. I really recommend it.
