Trig point clearly visible and only 30 feet from path running through southern part of wood. Not to be confused with the clifftop viewing point on the south east corner of wood.Ed29/01/2020
Walked through the forest from the car park to the trig point to the viewpoint and then down the southern footpath. Clear winter's day, sun setting.brandybordeaux29/12/2019
With Jo: pleasant walk through the woods from the Forestry Commission car park on a cloudy morning. No views from summit, but extensive views from various viewpoints on the west side of hill.amblerbob30/11/2018
Followed Campbell's/AJ's route from the SW. Nice walk.Herbert Anchovy10/10/2018
Parked to s at start of fp which quickly goes into wood. Feels wrong but worth following. Pleasant stroll up through woods to clear top. Met a couple from my home town, Perth, near the top. Bracken dying off in August,Campbell Singer24/08/2018
Good parking spot and f/p from SW. Path through crop then into wood, up and over past sculptures then through wood to trig, with summit in clearing nearby.Aye Jimmy05/06/2018
1st of three hills today. Green lane Station to Chester then train to Crewe then train to Shrewsbury. I followed the Shropshire way to Uffington then took a fp to the base of the hill then a rising fp before taking a track to a crossroad of paths and amazingly spotted an Otter padding towards me before it realised and then veered off into the undergrowth. I made my way to the Trig point but highest point is a few metres away on a levelled area. I took a path over to explore Douglas's Leap. Beautiful expansive views then a steep track joins up with the Shropshire way. I continued to rejoin my outward route to finish back in ShrewsburyDazingdale30/04/2017
Car park busy and still free on a sunny Friday afternoon. Footpaths a bit muddy.Dugswell224/03/2017
From car park on N side of hill(free in winter). Surprisingly busy even at 09:00 in the morning. Woodland tracks to trig point and adjacent summit of 12m diameter grass and bed rock which appears to have been levelled ? No views.RichardM01/02/2017
at Trig in small grassy clearing in mixed forest. Accessed from Forestry Commission car park with toilets and cafe ( free parking in winter). Clearing 20 p away of similar height.Denise 01/02/2017

With Minnie from small parking area by Haughmond Abbey driveway, crossed road followed path round base of hill to Criftin then up & along to trig/top & fort down path along E side of quarry, mostly pleasant woodland walking, sunny n dry but not too hot.apricorum15/05/2016
From Criftin. Trig point is a couple of metres from the summit so I don't know where RHW went to.clivevilla03/03/2016

What can be said about Haughmond Hill. OK to walk the dog (watch out for dog mess and bikes). Now boasts a cabin and refreshments. Not the place to come to walk in the quiet unless you pick a rainy wednesday afternoon in February. Excellent view from the edge, over Shrewsury, River Severn and beyond. Fabulous for dissabled access but I just don't like the place! No acsent or decent. Does not feel like a hill walk because its's not. It's more like a walk to the end of a wooded pier. My least favorite Shropshire Hill.Steve W11/05/2013
