Easy access to an interesting view of Torcs summit
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy, simon3, jackill,  14 Sep 2014
Torc West Top is usually done in conjunction with Torc itself, especially as it is a relatively easy 15 minute walk between the two. Park in the upper car park , V96686 84235 A (Point A), room for many cars. Head south west along the scenic old Kenmare road. Turn off the road at approximately V95830 82990 B (Point B) where you see the sign in picture onto a well-defined stone track interspersed with lengthy areas of boardwalk which makes the going fairly ok. From car park to Torc - Torc W Top and back to car will take 3 hours ate a leisurely pace. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/550/comment/5309/
