A-B. Starting from the car park, follow the purple arrow along the stony roadway to cross a stile. Continue to follow this roadway as it takes you gently uphill over the next 2km to reach the ruins of a Signal Tower perched atop some spectacular cliffs. The loop turns right here.

B-C. From the tower follow the purple arrows and join a well-worn path which takes you along the clifftops - please stay on the official track and be aware of the high cliffs on your left. At the top of the climb watch for a marker which directs you to the right – leaving the clifftop and onto the ridge of Bray.

C-A. Follow the purple arrows along a track which takes you downhill to reach stone walls and boundary fences. Veering right continue to follow the purple arrows to regain the stony roadway near the stile mentioned at A above. Turn left and enjoy the last 50m back to the car park.
