Saturday ‘A’ Walk
We have one walk on Saturday, an ‘A’ walk. ‘A’ Walks are for experienced walkers and are anything between 15 and 25 km in length depending on the difficulty of the terrain, the time of the year, and could be quite long (up to 8 hours) if the hours of daylight permit. The pace will be quite a bit livelier than the ‘B’ walks, but we still stop a couple of times for a bite to eat though! ‘A’ walks will also be along established tracks, but also on open ground that can be steep, rocky and uneven, so are for experienced walkers only.
This group meets in the car park of Saint Mochonog’s RC Church in Kilmacanogue.
We meet ready for a 9.00am departure, so to be safe, especially if you’re joining us for the first time, try and be there well in time, i.e. 5-10 minutes in advance.
‘A’ walks are held every Saturday with a few exceptions. Sometimes we go further afield than Wicklow and in those cases we usually do not meet at Kilmacanogue but make our own way to the start of the walk and make car pooling arrangements amongst ourselves. Also if a Saturday falls very close to either Christmas Day or New Years Day, we generally don’t have a walk that day.
The walks list is a work in progress, and currently only has entries up to September but will be updated on-line in this Google Sheets spreadsheet, so check regularly for updates …
