Join a National Parks & Wildlife Service guide and discover how to identify some of the non-native coniferous trees growing in the Upper Lake area of Glendalough. There will be an option at the end to see what is currently said to be Ireland’s tallest tree.

At 11am, Thursday 27th and Saturday 29th January 2022, duration is between 60 and 90 minutes for the main walk and an additional 20 minutes to see Ireland’s tallest tree.

This is a free event. Except for guide or assistance dogs, dogs are not permitted on National Park events.
