Bray People - Tracks and Trails Review

Press/Media: Other

Description

Open spaces, a safe environment, off the beaten tracks and offering unique experiences are all what we can showcase in County Wicklow through this video. In the longer term it will introduce these lesser known newer and accessible trails, to a much wider audience, highlighting parts of Wicklow to an eager hiking and walking family through the medium of the Tracks & Trails video format.

Walkers familiar with the Little Sugarloaf and Bray Head will delight in this lovely, new, marked trail which adds a further new route to County Wicklow's ever growing network of walks, which now link Bray Head, to The Wicklow Way to Glendalough, Tinahely and all the way to Blessington and the new Greenway there.

Cathaoirleach of Wicklow County Council, Cllr Pat Kennedy, is delighted that the Council commissioned Tracks & Trails to film in the county: 'It is great to see Wicklow welcoming locals and domestic visitors back to enjoy our wonderful range of outdoor activities amidst our breathtaking scenery. We have plenty of space in Wicklow for people to enjoy being outdoors among our mountains, lakes and forest, while maintaining social distancing and staying safe,' he said.

Cllr Anne Ferris, Cathaoirleach of Bray Municipal District, said: 'With the focus ever increasingly on our mental health, hiking is in so many ways good for us. Wicklow is close, it is accessible with good bus and rail links and there are hundreds of unspoilt varied routes here.'

Fred Verdier from Visit Wicklow, who is a passionate trial runner and hiker, believes Wicklow and the trails that traverse the county offers every level of hiker a wealth of choice. 'Within minutes of being on the trail like the one featured here, it is just you and the big open sky,' he said. 'There are so many trails in County Wicklow with wonderful choices of places to stop and eat or stay over. Tracks & Trails has always been passionate about and associated with producing videos of the most beautiful trails in Ireland. Tracks & Trails are delighted to once again work with Wicklow County Council Co. Wicklow who have been an innovator in attracting walkers.'
