Our regular walks include the Hollywood Forest, White Bog and the Hollywood Loop talking in part of St Kevin’s Way to Church Mt.

We also have Wellness Walks for those who like a level steady pace; these walks include the Hollywood Glen, part of the Forest walk and the Hollywood Heritage Trail.

Ideal walks for beginners and those who are building their fitness levels, or for people who simply want to walk for an hour and enjoy the flora and fauna along with the companionship of other walkers.

Weekend walks take place once a month, the date and venue is confirmed by the team leaders in advance at our Tuesday walks.

We had our first Saturday Hike on the 15th of June to the summit of Church Mt, this walk was very well attended by the group, the weather was ideal for walking bright sunshine and a nice refreshing breeze,  the group took some fantastic photos of the panoramic view over King’s River valley and the plans of Kildare.

We are very fortunate to have four experience team leaders available to guide our walks. Alan and Trina Burke and John and Ann Fitzgerald are very familiar with the trails and hill around Wicklow. They have extensively study St Kevin’s Way behalf of the Hollywood Community Forum, their feedback has be invaluable to the upgrading and improvement work being undertaking on this important Pilgrim Path.

The Hollywood Walking and Trails Group welcomes all age groups interested in walking, our philosophy is ‘We don’t stop walking because we are grow old; we grow old because we stop walking’. We also encourage families to come on our walks, children and teenagers less than 18 years under parent supervision and any organisations and clubs who would enjoy an evening out walking.

Currently we don’t have a joining fee so come along and enjoy the benefits of walking, getting fit, meeting new people and more important being part of all Hollywood has to offer, a connection with nature to rebalance ones equilibrium in this busy world, beautiful village, delightful scenery, community sprite and pride of place.
