An easy hike starting at Johnny Foxes Overflow Car Park and ending at Brady Pub in Shankill. This walk takes us through the final section of the Dublin Mountains Way. On exiting the overflow car park we hike along the R116 toward Kilternan, taking care to use footpath where we can.

This is approx. 3km on road. On meeting the R117 we turn right and hike approx. 2km to the entrance of Barnaslingan Wood (on left) just past the entrance to the Kilternan Hotel and ski training slopes.

The route takes us along a forest trail leading us up to the Scalp where fantastic views can be had. We descend westwards exiting Barnaslingan and after a very short distance on road enter Carrickgollogan Wood. The hike takes us thr...ough the wood, exiting just above Pucks Castle golf course. Note this is a public road. The final part of the route sees us turning right into and through Rathmichael Woods. After the last short walk on public road and crossing over the M50 we end up in Shankill village at the junction with Bradys Shankhill Pub.

Please note that this is NOT a circular route. The end point is well serviced by public transport and you can either opt to be dropped off at Johnnie Foxs Pub (Official FB Page) Overflow Car Park or operate a relay car pooling system by meeting and leaving a car Shankill. Please do not park in Brady's Car Park.
