Wicklow is a walker’s paradise, offering endless trails for walkers of all abilities. Marked trails run from the park, but for more challenging treks, Hidden Valley is ideally situated near Glendalough, Avondale House, Lugnaquilla and swathes of dramatic Irish countryside.
From Hidden Valley Holiday Park there are two marked river walk trails suitable for all ages, but please note that as the paths are grass trails they are not suitable for buggies and prams. Both trails follow the river and are gentle, secluded walks that take in a plethora of native flora and fauna. One of these trails leads to Avondale House, which affords stunning views and beautiful grounds, as well as a number of circular walking trails.
Avondale House and Forest Park (located in Rathdrum) is a magnificent forest park of over 500 acres, with woodland trails and treks ranging from 1 hour to 5 hours. For details, see Map.
Devil’s Glen boasts a dramatic landscape that was fashioned at the end of the last Ice Age, when the melt-waters of a vast ice-sheet created this spectacular valley. For details, see Map.
Glendalough – meaning literally ‘Valley of Two Lakes’ – is an iconic glen set in the breathtaking scenery of the Wicklow Mountains. All walking trails begin at the 6th century monastic round tower and range from gentle beachside strolls to challenging hill treks. There are nine marked walking trails across the valley and maps can be purchased at the information centre. For details, see Maps (front and back).
