From Trinity Church, bus to Les Platons... easy able on coastal path then ouchy through the gorse...and to similar looking high point to the east... concrete Pilar/trig? Near bar golf ball. The scheduled time should have allowed sufficient time to catch the same No4 bus back... (he was running late outwards over 10mins... sadly made his time up on his loops to the coves so a plod back down the road)N.Morters06/09/2018
No 4 bus from St Helier HP appeared to be small rocks amongst gorse near mast. Tried a few other candidates before continuing along coastal path.PeterD29/06/2018

True top probably amongst the thick gorse - so not having a machete I wandered round the summit path and mini-trig.summitter05/08/2017
Took the no 4 bus from the steep sided St Helier Marina where our boat was moored, having sailed in. Heavy rain but cleared by end for walk. Various possible locations for High Point in Les Platons area- near trig ( moveable) on gorse mound by Radome, near Aerial and near grass covered reservoir. Disturbed ground at all locations, esp near trig- German WW2 defences. Pleasant walk along coastal path.Denise 27/06/2017
Sailed to Jersey and berthed in the shelter of the huge granite walls of St. Helier marina. No.4 bus from St Helier to Les Platons alighting in pouring rain and low cloud. The area around the NATS raydome all seems very disturbed ground with various concrete fortifications. There's a short movable trig point of sorts, and the local high point is rock in island of bramble/gorse 25m to its WNW at N49.24812deg, W002.10516deg. 147m WGS84. Bramble/bracken covered ground on N side of most northerly mast is of similar height and feels a more natural high point. N49.24733deg, W002.10076deg. 144m WGS84. We also visited the reservoir accessed from La Rue du Tas Geon which is of similar height, ground at base of covered reservoir N49.24305deg, W002.09369deg. 147m WGS84 Very pleasant coastal walks in area.RichardM27/06/2017
Walked to summit from car park to the west along cliffside path and then up a steep minor path through gorse. Solo (wife stayed in car!). Lovely sunny evening with paragliders launching themselves off the cliff edge. Nothing much to mark the summit which appears to be a round clump of gorse circled by a track just north of a radar dome. There is a small concrete plinth (trig point?) nearby.jamessteel10020/04/2017
Day trip from Southampton. Approx 8 mile road walk each way from Jersey airport. Navaid in radome near top; Jersey trig pillar with bolt is nearer to the top; small rock outcrop buried in the gorse at the top.jonglew24/01/2017
Plenty of tracks and paths along the coast to the hp.rhalstead06/02/2016
Visiting Jersey, so had to 'climb' the highest point. Parked in the Beez Neez and walked down and north along the coastal path and back up to Les Platons. Nothing at all to mark the spot.callumorr19/10/2015
Visited on a round-Jersey bike ride with Chris & Nick.dhbond09/09/2013
No access problems. Plenty tracks/paths. Car parking nearby. From St. Helier on number 4 bus.destaylor24/05/2013
Combined this with the coastal path - lovely walktsharp03/06/2012

Our wedding anniversary! Asked a man living in the highest house on Jersey, but he did not know where the exact top was. I was only the second person to ask him in 15 years! Past the mast on a track to find a brass stud in a small concrete inverted flower pot.arranc10/10/2006
