This trail is absolutely beautiful, especially for someone like me who's not used to seeing so much greenery. Once you get to the Torc Waterfall, which is about 5 minutes from the car park, you can choose 1 of 3 paths: blue, yellow, or red. I did most of the blue path, which is considered the "moderate" one, and takes about an hour. The red is hard and takes you all the way up Torc Mountain. For the blue trail, it's only a little steep from the waterfall until the paths split, then it's easy and gorgeous. It crosses over the road, so you can continue along Muckross Lake. Unfortunately, the weather was slightly rainy when I went, so I didn't get to see the amazing views that these trails are known for. But it's still gorgeous scenery and so peaceful.
