Logged Descriptions  (logged by 13 users)ByDate of Ascent
Stoned pull-in to the north of the trees but then it is far easier to walk back along the road to just before trees finish. Here you can pick up an intermittent track through the bracken as you ascend. 20 minutes round trip. 800m. The tower is virtually unreachable in the bracken season.moorsman30/07/2019
