The Hol­ly­wood Walk­ing and Trails Group meet ev­ery Tues­day evening in the lovely vil­lage of Hol­ly­wood at 7 p.m. out­side Tutty’s Pub. 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 June 15 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.
