The Devils Ladder

This trip is a moderate hike for able scramblers and hikers and will be lead by a professional guide.

The Carrauntoohil Devils Ladder route is arguably the most popular route. In fact, it’s so popular that it’s been nicknamed the ‘tourist route’. It is also the shortest and the most direct way to go about climbing Carrauntoohil Mountain, taking between 4 and 6 hours to complete.

You will start the 12km (8miles) hike from Cronin’s Yard where there are Tearooms and toilets, following the path into the beautiful Hags Glen, a wide valley with lakes on either side of the trail. Crossing the Gaddagh River via the steppingstones, with Carrauntoohil mountain rising ahead in the distance while you pass by the Lough’s Gouragh and Callee. The walk up to Devil’s Ladder along fairly flat ground should take around 1.5 hours though the ground can get quite boggy. The hardest part of the hike is the scramble named Devil’s Ladder and that’s due to its steepness and gully like climbing.

The scramble up Devil’s Ladder can take up to 1.5 hours and it’s definitely not an area of the trail to rush. Once you’ve successfully emerged from the ladder you will take on the final long climb to the summit (look out for the cross).

Once you’ve made it to the top, you’ll be treated to some stunning views of the Kerry landscape. You will then descend down the Zig Zag path back to the start. The hike can take around 6 hours but will be dependent on group ability and weather conditions.
