Nature tripsGreat!No shadeRocky

AMAZING views from the top, on a clear day we could see for miles and miles. Bring a snack and enjoy the views. Very manageable, runners or hiking boots advised. the walkway alternates between planks and rocks. Make sure you turn around on the way up too there is stunning landscape from every angle.

A well walked busy trail during the peak season. Stunning location. Walk can be quite tough in places with large stone steps, well worth the effort for an amazing view.

HikingGreat!

Good hike up. Small parts are a little strenuous but the wooden walk ways make it easier. Nearer the top the more the wind got stronger and no real great scenery as the clouds closed in also. Still a good little jaunt. Stable footwear recommended.

Start on Cardiac hill and the move on to Torc Mountain. After reaching the top of the mountain the rest of the hike is downhill. Good footwear is a must.
