Not a long hike up to the top. Some parts of the steps going up are not very easy but is doable. I am not fit and I took it easy to get to the top. Very nice view

Part of the Killarney Adventure Race. Torc Mountain has two trails, 19k and 9k. The "cardiac steps" hurt me! :)

This hike is wonderful. Takes about an hour depending upon how much you stop to enjoy the scenery, take pictures, breath the fresh air... Doing this as well as the waterfall makes the whole trip more worth it.

Depends on personal hiking condition. We made it in 70 minutes to the top. But we were of good speed. I would say up to 100 minutes is ok.
