Wicklow Mountains National Park
The Wicklow Mountains National Park can be easily be accessed by foot from the Glenmalure Lodge. It is estimated that over one million visitors use the park every year and with over 200sq km of land around Wicklow, there is plenty of space for everybody to enjoy their own outdoor pursuit. The land has gradually been bought by the Government in recent years with it’s main goal to conserve the local biodiversity and landscape. The National Park and Wildlife Service are responsible for the management of the land.
Most of the upland area surrounding the Glenmalure Valley falls within the park’s boundary. The ridgeline connecting Derrybawn, Cullentragh, Mullacor, Lugduff, Conavalla, Table Mountain, Camenabologue and Benleagh have all considerable chunks within the park, as well as Corrigasleggaun and Carrawaystick Mountain.
