Nice family walk to the summit to round off a lovely day in Exmoor National Park! Ascended from the western side, enjoyed the views but didn't linger long on top as it was quite blustery, my young daughter was feeling cold and we were ready for some hearty pub grub!Gerry the Ranger23/09/2017

For those of us without a car this hill is not straightforward. I used the infrequent bus from Dunster to Wheddon Cross and then followed the superb bridleways through the forests to Dunkery Bridge from where the walk is straightforward. After a detour to Gt Rowbarrow, I then walked to Wooton Courtenay on the hottest day since 1976, and then over Periton Hill and down to the front in Minehead to catch a bus back.The walk from Wheddon Cross is highly recommended.trimarc221/06/2017

Done with Shaky on a warm but hazy day from Minehead going over Periton Hill first & then through Wootton Courtenay & Brockwell following the Macmillan Way all the way to the summit. Probably a good viewpoint but it was too hazy to see much. Then reversed the whole route back to Minehead by which point Shaky's dodgy knees were in full retreat.NotReallyABagger06/05/2017

Highest point of Somerset and Exmoor, also the only Dewey of this trip. parking in Dunkery Gate car park (SS 89565 40618) from where summit is visible, easy walk to summit up very well trodden path. No sign of trig point probably on site of toposcope. Obvious summit solidly built cairn on tumulus NNW of toposcope. Returned by same route. Could/should have made it a circular route and bagged sub-Dewey Great Rowbarrow approx 1.6km along ridge to the west.SteveSmith20/12/2016

From the campsite at Pool Bridge 875447, walked up road, through woods and fields to Wilmesham. Met farmer who was disappointed his rams hadn't performed this year and his lambs would be late. On to the church at Stoke Perol (in Doomsday book) and then followed lane on to the parking spot at 886430. Then followed route of bridleway to the top but this is not visible on the ground. Returned by heading due north to a gate just east of the ancient enclosure 891426 and on to pick up the path in East water and then west beside Horner water back to the campsite. A fine varied walk in the spring sunshine.mindlessflogger08/04/2015

4 mile round trip. From Dunkery Bridge car park, walked down to the River Anvill and then turned north and climbed gradually towards the summit as the rain got harder and harder. Exmoor ponies near the top added some interest, as there was nothing to see beyond the thick rain! Straight back down the hill to the car park.callumorr24/05/2014

from dunkery bridge via gt. rowbarrow. weather had been horrid, but was not raining when we arrived on top. views restricted by distant squalls and leaden skies. for the record i'd say the cairn is not quite as big as those on Drygarn Fawr & Tarren Trum Gelli in mid Wales.stig_nest20/11/2012

Accessed from Wheddon Cross where I alighted from bus from Minehead, taking the B3224 and then using the track that leads to Dunkery gate. I investigated the stream that rushes off the hill near hear before heading up the track that leads directly to the top of the hill. There was cloud hanging halfway up the hill but as soon as I started walking up, the mist started to rise revealing the hill. You cannot get the 360 degree view until you are virtually all the way up as the bulk of the hill blocks it. I was fortunate to get good lighting and the views on the combes below looking South was incredible and looking North east to the Bristol channel and west along the ridge. This was a very long walk laden with rucksack but I then headed on the ridge top path investigating the cairns before dropping down onto the Macmillan way west actually heading West till it meets a track called Stone lane. I followed this south for a few hundred metres before taking the footpath that drops into ExfDazingdale29/10/2012

Walked up from Horner, through woods initially and then over open moor. Deer, poneys, skylarks, grouse, pheasants and sparrow Hawkes seen on walk. Lovelly ascent, as was the descent via a long ridge. Great views over Bristol Channel to South Wales. One of the best summit cairns I've seen. Went specially from Bristol to do this hill. Could have done Dorset instead if I'd known it had already been done or even that someone else intended to do it. However may not have got a well earned cream tea afterwards there! Mel.BHMC12/06/2012

55mph wind and driving rain, almost zero visibility. Had to chase my glasses down the hill after they blew off! Is this the only cairn in Britain that requires a scramble? Spectacular views on a subsequent, sunnier visit though. Very easy hill.wheresthepath02/09/2006
