GREYSTONES WALKING TRAIL
The Greystones Walking Trail was officially opened by Cllr Derek Mitchell, Cathaoirleach of Greystones Municipal District, on 26th June 2018.
The eight-kilometre trail goes from Greystones train station to Kilmacanogue and connects to the Sugar Loaf Way, via the Burnaby, Kindlestown, Bellvue Hill, Kindlestown Woods, Ballydonagh, the Glenview N11 overbridge and Quill Road.
Access to the walking trail is well served by public transport from Greystones DART, Dublin Bus routes 184, 84, 45a, and Bus Eireann route number 133.
The Wicklow Uplands Council plan to open a walk from Kilmacanogue over the little Sugar Loaf to Bray later this year which will link into the Greystones Way and enable a circular walk of about three to four hours. It is hoped that the new route will eventually connect to the Vartry Reservoir walks at Roundwood and the Wicklow Way.
Greystones Municipal District Councillors allocated their tourism budget for the last two years to develop this walk.
Wicklow County Council wishes to advise that Cairn Homes PLC are carrying out road works on the R761 Kilcoole Road (between the junction of Glenbrook Park and Knockroe Roundabout). The works are to facilitate the construction of new footpaths, cycle tracks, bus stop and vehicular entrance to the housing development.
The works should last approximately 3 weeks, during which the road will be reduced to one lane of traffic for 24 hours a day. Localised traffic management will be utilised by the contractor during the works.
