Walk Description

The Wicklow Way skirts round to the west of Knockree Hill, descends to cross the Glencree River valley and reaches Crone Wood car park at 22km. From here a steady up hill walk brings the trail via a spectacular viewing point over Powerscourt Waterfall and Deer Park.
Soon, trekking into open country, the Dargle is the next river to be crossed, followed by a climb to 650m around the east shoulder of Djouce (775m). From here, the trail goes on to White Hill and then a raised walkway (installed to protect the fragile surrounding blanket bog from further serious erosion) marks the start of a long descent through Ballinastoe Woods, opening to reveal the wonderful vista of Lough Tay and the Luggala valley, to reach the Roundwood to Sally Gap road.
