As others, parked at end of Lendrick Hill track. Down the road to Down Hill Farm track, up track and though gate on RHS, just before a small copse of trees (marked as a pond on my OS Map). Through another gate at top of field and up the open hill side. Cairn at top has been rebuilt.TRG31811/03/2020
A Christmas morning leg stretch with wife and son no.1. Beautiful blue skies, frozen underfoot, and totally still air. Started at Lendrick Hill and included a wander over to Castle Hill Reservoir - fabulous dam walk. Now for that Chrissy dinner and champers!!summitter25/12/2019

Parked at the track end for Lendrick Hill, walked a short distance down the road and along the track towards the farm, then through a gate at the small wood, across a field, another gate and up on grass to the summit. Interesting little fort with good views.LizH27/10/2019

Parked at the track entrance at NO 00809 03960. Took the road south to the beginning of the track to Easter Downhill farm, leaving it at the first bend to ascend steeply up the east flank of the hill to the summit (two easy gates) through rough pasture. Descended the SE ridge (two gates) back to the track, taking it north to join my outward route. Solo.Man of Kernow120/05/2017
From Lendrick parking via entrance to Easter Downhill farm. Remains of substantial fort at the summit.NormanW01/05/2017

At night. Head torch on. Parked at the entrance to the Dam. Gate was closed so parked alongside it. Over the Dam, up to the farm road then straight up to the summit. Very easy even after heavy rain.Stevend127/01/2016

Track across Glendey burn, over gate and short distance NW to another gate, then easy ascent.Topographer5720/04/2015
Picked off after going up Lendrick Hill. Substantial cairn stones probably robbed from rampartz oc hill fort.SteveSmith10/02/2015
From across the reservoir dam (worth a visit even if not climbing the hill). Vegetation makes it tough from the dam to the farm road (easier in winter!). Thence a straight forward climb up the SE ridge past the pine trees.Minto31/08/2014
plus 3 P30s, fine steep SW slopeRHW18/02/2013
Parked at track on E side of road and N of Downhill Farm track. Followed the track to a gate in the field just S of the pond. Through a gate at the top of the field and fairly straight up.chrisbien25/07/2010
Easy access from south end of Castlehill Reservoir, over sluice, up little track to farm road then straight up. The water drops an astonishing height from the reservoir down to the river below. Vertigo!agentmancuso06/12/2008
