Upper Liffey Falls

Postby Kristina367 » Wed 03 Jun, 2020 9:41 am

Can anyone tell me the condition of the Liffey River track above Riversdale Rd.? The Breton map shows it going up to Highland Lakes Rd. Anyone been there in the last year or so? Kristina

Last August I walked from the main (upper) car park to where that track reaches the river. The track is wide and normally very easy to use, but it had a huge number of trees fallen across it, making it a real scramble to get through. I went only a short distance on from where the track reached the river, following the track upstream, and I think there may be less fallen stuff from there on up. I have walked from the lookout on highland lakes road down to the Falls car park and usually found it to be a very nice walk, but I haven't done that bit for a few years.
