Parked early in village of Stiperstones , short but steep climb up for a loop across the top . Very windy on top and saw nobody else up there ..D SID03/02/2020
Parked at the Knoll / Nature reserve car park. Followed easy path to trig although had to use compass a a few times as it was mega foggy today. Scrambled up slippy rock to Trig from East side thebonce up, realised west would have been safer. No views due to fog but a great mini adventureironwolf27/12/2019

Started in the Stiperstones National Nature Reserve - Knolls Car Park at SO 36978 97716 (take note someone has turned the road sign 90 degrees at the entrance to the CP) easy walk for the first part until you reach the ridge then the path becomes very stoney, the summit a trig point (TP6185) requires an easy scramble, excellent views all round.Tony Hartry14/01/2019

Very rocky path. Good quality footwear essential to prevent twisted ankles.Ed15/08/2018
From Snailbank village hall via Lordshill & The Paddock. Clear path from The Paddock which joins the Shropshire Way. Rock formations and 360 degree views to be seen en route before reaching Manstone Rock and the trig point which requires some care but should be safely achievable for most walkers/climbers.muzza214/08/2018
Parked at The Bog car park (free). Went up to climb on Nipstone Rock and up to Nipstone Hill (445m) first. Then a lovely walk, climbing all the rocky tors along the way, to the summit. Spectacular position for the trig point. With CLARE, Sail, Danu, Coel & Alfie.Dangerous Dave09/08/2018

From the National Nature Reserve car park walked the Stiperstones (quartzite) ridge scrambling up to the summit trig. Continued to the more rounded Northern end dropping via Mytton Dingle - yellow & orange bracken with two Red Kites circling high above. Returned via Buxton Wood - Tankerville mine - Pennerley and the Bog (for tea and cake). Extended walk south alone the Stiperstones ridge to pick up the Nipstone and see the Hebridean Soay sheep. A beautiful place.briandavies18/09/2017

From parking due South. Enjoyed the wee scramble to the trig.NormanW15/06/2017
Along the ridge from the South car park to the Paddock and back via the trig point. Occasional intense showers made scrambling on slippy rock quite interesting. A marvellously atmospheric place.Nick Down103/06/2017

Minsterley to White Grit over the Stiperstones Ridge. Brilliant hill, could easily spend a day scrambling on the crags and enjoying the views. Watched a morning inversion in the valleys to the south slowly break up which was a nice treat.Jake99425/01/2017

Parked at The Bog car park, Bridge Car park is easier path though. Most striking summit in Shropshire. Very rocky and not easy to walk on the paths. The Bog visitor centre is worth a visit, nice cakes.Viroco09/10/2016

Very rocky very fun!! I liked scrambling, and it's the best scrambling ever.BlueFreddyTeam10/09/2016
Parked near The Bog to the South. The top was a bit rockier than I thought, and our 4 and 6 year olds only touched the trig point with very close supervision.Ham and Skate10/09/2016
Pouring with rain. Will have to come back again to see the views!twg2709/07/2016
Finest summit in Shropshire with its amazing rocky tors. Climbed solo from the The Knolls to the south via the Shropshire Way. Return via car park to SE. Actually 2nd time I've done this one. Great views west into Wales. Mostly pleasant afternoon with lots of Sun, but heavy shower on return. Time just over 1 hour.jamessteel10025/06/2016
