    On the just over nine kilometers long circular route, the spectacular Glendalough Valley awaits you with a small waterfall, great views of the valley and a fascinating ruin of a former mining settlement.Right at the beginning of your tour you have to master a steep climb, but the effort is worth it. On the one hand you will be able to admire the small but fine waterfall Poulanass on the way up, on the other hand you can expect a great panoramic view over the Wicklow Mountains after the successful ascent. In addition, the tour will now be more relaxed for you, as "The Spinc" is a mountain ridge that you are hiking along.Only at the northwest tip of this hiking trail is it quickly downhill for you. At first the descent is quite flat, but as soon as you can admire the Upper Lake in the distance and the Glenealo River up close, you will feel the slope in your legs.Once you have reached the Glendalough Valley again, you follow more or less the course of the Glendalo River. Soon you will notice the ruins of a former mine on the riverbank, where lead, zinc and silver were once mined.Further along the river towards the starting point, you walk the last few kilometers in the footsteps of Saint Kevin von Wicklow. When you arrive at Kevin’s Bed View, you will discover a cave where supposedly the saint slept. See for yourself whether it is a good place to sleep and pay a visit to the cave.Now it is only a few minutes' walk until you get back to your starting point.
