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 suitable to do from May to September as the weather would be better. Lots of other activities to do around Torc Mountain for example you get to... 更多
The first part is definitely steep as you ascend from the Krnmare road, but keep going, as the view is well worth it. Anyway, the path is too narrow and steep for a descent.

Sheer, uneven rocks act as steps as you hike all the way up the mountain. It is quite... 更多
this is a great walk for everyone to do on a nice sunday leisure trip with the family, in the boggy parts there are raised platforms to walk on and on the way there are viewing points to stop and view the beautiful scenary
