Loretta A What started as a bit of a disaster turned into a very nice day. We wanted to hike Lugnaquilla, the highest mountain in Wicklow which is described as strenuous 6-8 hrs hike but first, we set off too late, second we got lost twice and third we couldn't find the place and a local sent us to the wrong place. So instead of ruining the day we decided to just for for a hiker where we parked to get some fresh air. To start off we walked along a fire road which was not very exciting but soon joined the Wicklow Way and from there on it got better and better. We had a well deserved rest on the summit and on the descend we had ourselves an adventure, lol, as we veered off the path, ended up in really dense wood where we nearly had to crawl through, jump over small crevasses over and over. This was now 3 hours into the hike and we were getting tired (it was rather strenuous) and I slipped and landed on my backside twice and the last time when I had to jump I hesitated, lost my balance and yep, landed on my face. Ouch! But it was all good! We had glorious blue sky, there was still plenty of snow on the mountain, lots of impressive icicles, we saw black grouse and grey deer. It took 4.5 hours and 1,300 calories. We did see Lugnaquilla in the distance and that is definitely a hike we need to do in summer to give us more daylight.
Kevin G Countryside walk around Chapeltown, in the woods and up the hills, fresh air before journey back tonight
Loretta A I am looking for a nice challenging walk in the Wicklow mountains. Does anyone have my tips?
Maureen T 8.5 hike - did a little geoc.c. was a great morning.
love the laurentians.
loving my new fall/winter treaders.
wondering if the GPS on phone is as accurate as a REAL global positioning device?
Nocturnal R Went up Taroko Gorge near Hualien, Taiwan. Our guide took us up a trail to 750m elevation where we had picnic lunch. Also tried out wild mulberries and raspberries found along the trail. The gorge is simply gorgeous
Pam H I love hiking after I achieved The 3 Peak Challenge in the Summer to help children go to school in Cambodia for Edukid.org.uk Yeah I need to get back out there and enjoy Autumn
David F This challenge has been sitting in my list for quite some time now. I completed the climb on the 8th October with no problems. However, it was very much a challenge on summit night. Such an amazing, emotional and rewarding experience. Very proud of this achievement.
Karen F Whoops - should have hit complete on this one a little while ago - just over one hour walk with husband along the coastal trail in Yallingup last month. He didn't like the hill very much (to be fair, he wasn't exactly wearing hiking shoes)
Aleksandra M Concured another 14-ner mount Split in High Sierra last Sunday! 14,006 ft to be precise 3 out of 13, 10 more to go, I guess next season.
Paul M encouraged this.
