Wicklow Uplands Council is an independent voluntary organisation representing over 50 diverse member groups and individuals in the Wicklow Uplands
Farming and forestry have left a strong imprint on the Wicklow countryside. Generations of farmers have earned their livelihoods from the area and today remain an integral part of the uplands environment.
The Wicklow/Dublin uplands are renowned as a spectacular area due to the diversity and quality of its landscape. Throughout this spectacular landscape there are numerous waymarked trails which cater for recreational users of all abilities. To demonstrate just some of what the Wicklow/Dublin uplands has to offer and the range of walking trails available a very small sample of trails are listed below.
The communities that reside, work and visit the Wicklow Uplands Region are central to the work and projects undertaken by the Wicklow Uplands Council.
Events such as panel meetings, information evenings, training workshops and educational outreach programmes are scheduled throughout the year with many of them open to all interested parties.
Recently announced initiatives include the Wicklow Trails Heritage Recording Project and a Photo Competition to celebrate the rich natural and cultural heritage found in the region.
