This hike starts in the forest plantation of Crone Woods as we follow the Wicklow Way up through the trees to a balcony path from where we get great views of Powerscourt waterfall, the tallest in Ireland. Our route follows the Wicklow Way around the flanks of Djouce, (733 metres), and gives wonderful all round views of the mountains and the coast. Next we head to Warhill, then drop down to cross the Liffey Head bog and ascend Tonduff, our final hill of the day.
