Parked by Post Box in Loxton. Took West Mendip Way until level with summit. Across 2 fields to Trig on Field Boundary then walked back crossing OS spot in the field.fosal2917/10/2019

Superb views today on a 3 HuMP dash from Weston train station to Axbridge.Alex C27/10/2017
From the litter strewn viewpoint. The big field had a sign saying beware of the bull but, as the gate was open, I figured he probably wasn't there.clivevilla19/05/2017
Parked at viewpoint and followed nearby bridleway to pick up West Mendip way and then across field to trig.Ramblingpaul20/02/2017
From view point car park on Roman Road . Followed muddy farm track direct to trig off bridle way to north.Mark Sims06/12/2016
Lovely sunset from here with great views over Bristol Channel, on drive home from Plymouth. Trig on mound at fence line but indistinct highpoint in field. Farmer approached but seemed reassured that we were trigging not shooting. Approached along bridle way from Loxton village.Denise 10/10/2016
Nice Bridleway from Loxton with ancient feel about it then along field boundaries to summit. Superb views over Bristol Channel in the last of the day light, lights of S Wales coast twinkling in the distance. While Abneying the summit a farmer spotted our lights and came to investigate, apparently thinking we might be out shooting. He was quite happy -or possibly relieved - when he found we were only visiting the summit.RichardM10/10/2016

From Car park on Bleadon Hill to NW. Trig other side of BW fence, but higher ground to west of fence. Although middle of field maybe slightly higher. Great view across the Bristol Channel.PeterD05/05/2016
From viewpoint on a Bleadon Hill Road. Farm track branches off from West Mendip Way. Track initially E of boundary, then crosses to W side. Trig point on E side of boundary, summit W side. Excellent his. Great views. Solo.CJM24/06/2015

From Loxton, parking OK.jimbloomer22/02/2014
Used the trade route from the NW. There is indeed a permissive path across the summit now but it's not well signed.Chris Peart04/03/2013
Parked in CP at viewpoint to NW. East then South along West Mendip Way, then right fork through gate onto farm track that runs almost due south along fence to summit trig. This farm track not on OS map, but did see a permissive path sign so trespass not required. Very muddy and in cloud at top so no views.Hillsidenick03/01/2013
Ascended from the North West, I could see nothing as visibility was down to about 20-30 yards. Eventually got close to trig after roaming across a field full of hay bales then found a path. Which led me to just the other side from the trig. As the fence looked higher than the trig I didn't bother climbing over the barbed wire fence.isabelle22/10/2012
From parking to NW then West Mendip Way and farm track. Ground at fence higher than trig.chrisbien21/05/2012
Summit is on private farm land; lots of signs warning 'Private - Keep Out', but we went there to reach the summit and as there was no-one around, we did the trespass.jonglew28/04/2012
Walked in via bridleway to NNW, then take the right path when it splits and a farm track takes you directly to the trig point. excellent views + no need for any trespass.Dugswell226/03/2012
Winscombe to Brent Knoll. Misty. Goat & horse field.Smudge10/03/2012

Trespass schmespass. Needs must.Martin R24/08/2011
Tracks all the way up from a car park to the north. Visited at dusk which with Spring vegetation (everything so much more advanced than back home in Scotland) was very atmospheric. The carpark was a bit busy, I got away with it, but would be uncomfortablfasgadh18/04/2011

With Bob -climbing trip to SW. Stopped off to climb an obscure scruffy VS crack off the beach at Brean Down. I persuaded Bob for a leg stretch to add this nearby Sub-marilyn. Then on to Dartmoor.Chris Pearson23/06/2002
Parked at Loxton and used the West Mendip Way to approach the summit. A shimmy over a barbed wire fence a the trig point was reached. From the point good views could be had of the Quantocks and distant views of Exmoor and South Wales.garyhoney21/04/2000
