  • Difficult enough but achievable. More difficult coming down. Good walking shoes required. Warm clothes plus hat as it's very windy at the top. Takes 2 -3 hours depending on your fitness levels. More s...  more »
  • Great rise, well built. Goes over hill and Dale, partially something sophisticated. Specify climb with 100 minutes. Quicker but also if you are tiring. You will be rewarded with a breathtaking view.

  • Here I review the hiking trail leads to the top of TORC mountain from Muckross. To the waterfall, the trail is very well signposted, and some routes are signposted... Then it will be somewhat more difficult to find the right way of zm Summit. We had asked us when the information on the parking lot of Muckross and did so about how the trail, which was also a great advantage we have asked us when other hikers coming toward us... There are recommended definiv footwear, as the route to the top of wooden planks, natural stone steps and partly steep terrain and sometimes is very demanding as inexperienced Berggängerin, sneakers are not the right choice. The view is great, but there are other views which have captivated me more... If I had the choice again I would to the waterfall going, and then possibly a little spin, and take me more time for Muckross...
