“Take a Hike” at Wicklow Mountains National Park

posted in: Sixth Class News | 0

Ms Coe’s Sixth Class took part in “Take a Hike” at Wicklow Mountains National Park.

We met our guide at the Upper Lake in Glendalough.  He introduced us to the outdoor ethics programme called “Leave No Trace” that encourages us to look after our surroundings.  We had great fun orienteering and exploring nature.  We used our maps to find clues hidden around Glendalough which we pieced together to revel the seven principles of Leave No Trace.

 

After lunch, we hiked back over a mountain and through the forest.  Everyone enjoyed the beautiful sunshine that appeared just as we began our hike which made the views even clearer and more breathtaking.
