This route follows the tourist route to the top of Torc Mountain where breathtaking views await. A combintion of forest track and boardwalk make up the route to the top of Torc Mountain. From Torc Mountain my route heads over to Torc Mountain W Top, which is virtually unvisited. The section between the two Torcs is wet in places, with no tracks at all. I fancied I saw an eagle flying high above me, but my photos were too vague to know for sure. After Torc W Top my route crosses open ground to rejoin the heaving masses on the path. Enjoy the panoramic views of the lakes and distant mountains that make this a worthy climb for both experienced and novice walkers alike.
