      Ticknock offers up to 30 km of mountain and forest walks with some spectacular views of Dublin City, Dublin Bay, Bray Head and Wicklow Mountains. The forest has an extensive network of forest trails with pleasant moderate walks through the trees, it also has a tarmac road leading all the way to the top and is easily accessible for children and people with lower level of fitness.

      Walk: Walking trails in this forest include Fairy Castle Loop, Dublin Mountains Way and Wicklow Way; The Fairy Castle loop (5.5 kms, 1 ½ hrs, moderate) is a lovely looped walk taking in the wonderful views over Dublin from Three Rock Mountain and Fairy Castle, traversing sections of the Dublin Mountains Way and Wicklow Way, before returning via the old rifle range to the car park.

      Mountain Biking: Ticknock Mountain Bike Trail is a network of purpose-built singletrack trails and forest roads that are designated for use by mountain bikes on a waymarked circular route of 8km in length. The trails take the rider through beautiful forest and heathland with fantastic views over Dublin City and Bay and the Wicklow Mountains beyond. Forest road climbs lead you into tight twisty singletrack with loads of fast descents, ups and downs, tight turns and technical rocky bits, guaranteed to leave you smiling The trails are waymarked in one direction, please follow the red arrows.
      Permanent Orienteering: Tiknock has 2 permanent orienteering courses, Short (1.1 km) and Medium (2.6 km).


      There are three large rock formations (Three Rock Mountain) just after the end of the tarmac road great to climb on and sit and enjoy the picturesque views over the Wicklow mountains and the coast. Further up in the area, there is also a Two Rock Mountain (536 meters above the sea level) with romantic ruins of the Fairy Castle.
