I completed this hike in the morning. Parking is tough at Torc Waterfall, and the trail isn't well marked, but the hike isn't too strenuous and the views are worth it. The whole thing took about 2 hours. It wasn't too crowded as it was...More

It's a really stunning walk and there's a water stream at the top for you to refill your water bottle, which you'll need to do! Take your camera and something comfortable to walk in. The steps can be very slippery. It's a great walk and...More

This trail is not marked at all! If you have no idea where you are going you might get lost. The walk is all up a hill and can be dangerous if it is raining as it is on rocks sometimes. If you are not...More

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.
