Up the wind farm road. Back down over Ben Thrush.Minto30/05/2017
Solo. From Glen Sherup carpark at NN971051. Circuit over Steele’s Knowe. After ascending Ben Trush went down track northwards and up beside wall/fence to reach the summit of Rowantree Craig. An ill-defined summit with highest point just east of fence junction. Noted that the OS 1:25,000 map has the name Rowantree Craig at the somewhat lower top to the NW. Now very misty so no views at all.pwbellarby12/03/2017
Steele's Knowe trig and second OS 485m spot height (which seems lower), Rowantree Craig, Ben Thrush. A dreich day after a week of rain, so the windfarm access road was the dry option, its tediousness relieved by what may be the planet's only 19 mph speed limit sign. For the first time in a dozen years of hill walking, I fell into a cattle grid, both boots slipping on the snow covered grid at the turbine 5 turning, and my shins rattling like xylophones against the metal as I made the short and inglorious descent into the cattle grid's basin.Nick Down105/02/2017

I used the Green Knowe wind farm access road to bag Ben Thrust, Rowantree Craig and Steele's Knowe.Dugswell222/07/2015
Continuation of walk from Steele's Knowe. Took faint path down to wind turbine no.5, then down to bealach, turning left to follow another track up onto the ridge of Rowantree Creag. Diverted east off track at its highest point to reach summit area just east of wall/fence junction. Walk continued to Ben Thrush.Man of Kernow118/04/2015
Parked hotel car park - notice says, private car park, walkers welcome. Took the old right of way track, wind farm road soulless. Overcast then sunny, mild, calm, good views.iangalbraith29/10/2014
