The Wicklow Way

by Jake Shortland

 

This is my first series entitled Grit. Officially recognised in 1980 after having been recognised as a walking trail by J.B Malone in 1966. The Wicklow Way is Ireland's first and longest way marked trail traversing 130km of mountains, forests and fields.  This expedition took me 5 nights and 6 days of walking to complete and was my first time backpacking solo.
