Maulin (Irish: Málainn, meaning High or sloping ground) at 570 metres (1,870 ft), is the 272nd–highest peak in Ireland on the Arderin scale, however, being below 600 m it does not rank on the Vandeleur-Lynam or Hewitt scales. Maulin is in the far northeastern section of the Wicklow Mountains, at the mouth of Glensoulan Valley; Powerscourt Waterfall lies at its base.
Maulin is accessed from the trails through Crone Woods, a Sitka spruce plantation on its northern slopes; Maulin is also accessible just off the main Wicklow Way. Maulin is often climbed as part of a "loop route" called the Circuit of Glensoulan which starts at Crone Woods car-park, and complete a 16-kilometre loop of Maulin, Tonduff 642 metres (2,106 ft), War Hill 686 metres (2,251 ft), and Djouce 725 metres (2,379 ft), and then returning to Crone Woods car-park.
The Knockree An Óige youth hostel is located at the base of Maulin in Lackandarragh near the village of Enniskerry.
