The Glendalough Spinc ridge and Glenealo Valley walking trail (White Route) is a 10km (4 - 5hr) loop walk that rewards you with breathtaking views of not only the spectacular Glendalough Valley from above, but also as you climb higher, the vista over the Wicklow Uplands opens out around you.


All the hard work is at the beginning for the first 2-3k as you climb up by the waterfall and then up the steps to the top of the Spinc Ridge but the reward is worth it.  After that is all downhill and no less beautiful.
