Torc Mountain (1,755ft/535m) is a safe and accessible climb for families. Railway sleepers make the terrain easy to negotiate. Views are beautiful. Take the first left after Muckross House and follow the Old Kenmare Road to the Upper Torc Car Park. When the climbing track emerges into open country, watch out for the turn-off to the right to leave the main track and climb the mountain. Make sure to carry a fleece or warm sweater because, even on a hot day, the mountain breeze can be chilly on the summit. Strong, waterproof footwear is also recommended.
