Wicklow Way Rucksack Readers Walking Guidebook

Wicklow Way Rucksack Readers Walking Guidebook

authors: Jacquetta Megarry and Sandra Bardwell
The Wicklow Way is Ireland's most accessible and popular long-distance walk, running between Marlay Park, south Dublin, to Clonegal, 81 miles to the south-west. The Scenery is varied, with much of the route lying over 1600 feet (500m). From the heather-clad Wicklow Mountains, the Way gives glorious views over mountains, loughs, and the Irish coast. It also passes through forests and farmland, on a mixture of tracks, roads and winding lanes rich in wildlife and history.
