|From forest gate/info board at right-angled bend to SW. Track up to top of wood, under power lines, after 100m turn sharp R for 100m to fallen tree. Excellent path immediately L from here leads directly to trig.||Aye Jimmy||17/11/2017|
|From corner of track to werngate farm locked gates. Easy forest tracks under crackly electricity lines up to shipping container and severely beaten astra van. From here I should have headed right as just a wee bit beyond the junk theres a superb path which goes all the way to the trig.
The way i went was far less pleasant.
Cracking views from top. If a few more trees blow over it will be a stunning panorama.||stig_nest||16/03/2016|
|Took a shortcut up through the wood on the way to the top. Took the proper route back down!||Alan Caine||05/10/2015|
|Parked at forest gate, festooned with locks, including the walkers gate. As RHW, there realy is a good silica sandstone path leading up the ridge from 50m SE of the upper road junction||GordonAdshead||25/08/2015|
|From Ffrith. Had trouble parking in the village, with both pubs where parking might have been possible currently defunct. Parked 100m south of the chapel on the main road by a row of houses at SJ 28550 55200. Followed track under viaduct, then a marked trail to the hill up a green lane to Bryn. Then followed RoW SW into the forest. Failed to find a path to the summit. Tried to thrash my way over tree stumps, high bracken and hidden brambles, but this attempt ended in my bloodied rout back to the RoW! Returned north to the forest edge and worked my way round it (one barbed wire fence) to the NW 375m ring contour and then over a stile to the trig point (definitely higher). There was bemused to find a fine path running along the ridge. Followed this down NE to where it joins the RoW through the forest - it's at SJ 26779 54773. It's a bit obscured when approaching from the north, but the key to a painless bag! Also had difficulty on descent, following overgrown paths back down the valley.||marktrengove||05/07/2015|
