Notes

Parking , registration and download will be in the main Trooperstown carpark off the R755 road 2K before Laragh for those coming from Dublin direction. Google maps 'Trooperstown Car Park'. If travelling south from Dublin on the R755 take the left turn just after Trooperstown Wood Lodge (signposted Mountain Rescue Base) and continue straight down to car park.

Parking is in the main Trooperstown Car Park where there is room for about 50 cars.
When this fills up you will be directed to park either a) on the road from the R755 coming down to the car park or b) across the bridge after the car park heading South through the forest.
If you are parking at either a) or b) please park so other cars can pass and allow gaps every 10 cars so (so opposing cars can pass each other).

Brown | 7.6km long with 295m climb | suggested for experienced orienteers only
