With Jenx and Bryher and scores of other New Year’s Day walkers. First folk on a hill top all trip! Good views of the town. From the usual CP to NW.nordicstar01/01/2019
Festive atmosphere, crowded with walkers. Strange after the quit of the Shropshire and Hereford hills.jenx01/01/2019
Directly up hill from back of visitor centre at north of country park, part of Geology (green) route. Fantastic views from trig point, beacon. Return to south to pick up horse trails back to car park. With Tim747.CreakingHiker16/11/2018

Great views of the Cotswolds from the top. Beautiful area.twg2726/02/2018
Parked in the free car park at the visitor's centre of Robinswood Hill Country Park. There is a great view from the top, well worth the effort to get there.Sprog12/08/2017
A round of Gloucester, Churchdown Hill from Church parking easy paths to top, nice view frim trig, Alney Island, nice to wander round but difficult to determine high point, Good pull up Robins Wood Hill & great views from Beacon/Trig, Leckhampton Hill from quarry parking, good views & interesting Devil's Chimney, Finally-quick jaunt through tall grass to Birdlip Trig & top, very warm all day some Sun.apricorum25/06/2017
Bagged as YSM665 Robinswood Hill. We had planned to do this last night in the dark but both being tired teds meant we got lost in the housing estate near the ski centre. I am sure Mr U2 will complain that it was all my fault as I was navigating to the wrong hill with a different trigpoint on it, I'm saying nothing until I've seen my brief! So glad we've didn't do it as it was a killer on the legs and had a great view at the beacon which we would have missed out on. Much quicker on the way down.thejackrustles25/04/2017
Lovely run/walk round & up to the beacon.AngiLala18/03/2017
Detour on journey S. Country Park. Ascent from the W over hard frozen ground. Great view point. Calm in bright morning sun under cloudless blue skies, slight mist in frosty vallies to the SE. BBQ sites just below summit worthy of an evening summer visit.RichardM20/01/2017
Highly recommended break from M5 ( J12). Superb views on clear frosty morning over Gloucester and Severn Vale . Trig, Beacon, BBQ sites, Topograph, benches, paths, information boards. We thought the HP is unmarked point on ridge path c 10 m before trig ie not in between trig and beacon.Denise 20/01/2017
From car park to northeyesofthenorth09/10/2016
From Robinwood county park. I followed the Geology trail up, visiting the foot, then rim of an interesting quarry. The geology of the hill, and the view, is well described on a summit signboard, admirably not dumbed down, but not too complicated (like the Observer series). A clear day, so extensive views, though Gloucester cathedral backed by the Malverns held the eye. Worth every one of the 100 mins.pwheeler22/09/2016
From car park SSW of hill.jimbloomer31/05/2016
Steep up hill from the small car park and there are many paths through the woods forcing you to take a rather indirect route to a very nice summit.Swindon Bagger21/08/2015
1/9 quick walk up from the car park many muddy tracks criss cross the hill. Persevere and you will attain the top !Fergalh09/12/2014
With Ollie, Sue and Alice. Parked in CP off Fox Elms Road. Slipped and slid up over hill to top but worth the effort. Wall's factory clearly visible.Newton Maximus07/12/2014
On way back from Josua's open day at Plymouth University. He didn't bother getting out the car. Went up from the country park car park. Follow the rough Tarmacy path up from here.simon and co06/04/2014
From Country Park Car Park to N. The steep and muddy grass was treacherous on the descent, in the dark, wearing wellies.Chris Peart29/12/2013
A straightforward walk from the (free) car park to the north.JohnStoneham15/07/2012
Steep, slippery ascent from the car park marked on the 1:25k OS map SW of the summit. Return was past the dry ski slope and through a golf course.jonglew25/06/2012
Used busy car park to NW. This hill has numerous pathways up .The summit has fine views and is maked by a trig pillar, beacon and a millennium beacon. GR8 views on this lovely March morning.Dugswell205/03/2012
P near Fox Elms. Track and path to top is steep and slippy. Top seems to be just before you get to indicator. Unexpected narrow ridge with great views when out of trees 14:22chrisbien06/12/2011
Took one of the countless paths through the trees from the carpark. Grand views from the top.Herbert Anchovy18/11/2011
Used the Geology trail however saw nothing but a load of old stone. Maybe should have used the Tree trail.Martin R24/08/2011
Lovely hill that I wasn't really in the state to appreciate having run across town from Tinker's Hill to climb it. That's the trouble with using coach trips to bag hills...DanHolme21/02/2011
A very nice urban hill with free car park and good conveniences. A myriad of paths leads to the top.Father Ted12/12/2010

This hill has numerous pathways up .The summit has fine views and is maked by a trig pillar, beacon and a millennium beacon which seems to have its plaque removed also a fine geological monument well worth a walk along the ridgehodder25/07/2009
