The Dublin Mountains Way was officially opened from Shankill to Tallaght on 31st October 2010.
The entire route from Shankill to Tallaght is now fully waymarked.
This route will be classified as one of the national waymarked ways and is waymarked with the standard yellow walking man symbol. The sections where the Wicklow Way and Dublin Mountains Way run alongside is signed with DMW and WW to avoid confusion.
One of the flagship projects of the Dublin Mountains Partnership is the establishment of a long distance trail, the Dublin Mountains Way (DMW), across the mountains from Shankill in the east to Tallaght (Sean Walsh Park) in the west, in all approximately 42 kilometres of trail. The DMW has been an objective of the local authorities for close to twenty years and with the formation of the partnership it has been realised. This project has been achieved through the cooperation of Coillte, Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council, South Dublin County Council, Dublin City Council and some private landowners.
