Glorious day to re-visit The Cloud with Lisa Mountain. 13.40vegibagger29/12/2016
Very pleasant walk up from Timbersbrook car park. Easy route to follow. Even though it was after 3pm there we quite a few families about. The weather was cloudy but the local hills were all visible. The summit was I believe the rocky outcrop a short distance from the trig point and direction indicator. I heard plenty of birds but only saw a few Meadow Pipits. Time was 50 minutes for about 2.25 miles.isabelle13/11/2016

From railway station, along the canal then along footpaths; easy navigation on a beautiful spring day. Views north twds Cat and Fiddle good, but hazy westwards over the Cheshire plain. Returned via Timbersbrook. A very pleasant walk from a hill oft seen from the train, well worth the efort.JOHNS28/05/2016

Area big enough for 3/4 cars at circa SJ 907636. Farm track leads up beside house before footpath/right of way to top. This is probably the shortest route for those looking for a quick bag.bowlesy16/05/2015
