Large dedicated area for parking along the road around the Bulkeley Mill T-junction. A path leads through a gate in the wall opposite and turns immediately left. Keep on this track as far as the signpost for the Sandstone Trail on the col. Here, permissive paths lead towards, but do not cross the summit. A short detour into the trees is required.moorsman06/03/2020

Post Christmas walk with family. Finally took the time to find the summit - a nice little rock on the mound. Let my niece bag it first!tumpawumpa27/12/2017
I've been past the summit several times over the years following the Sandstone Trail but this was the first time I've detoured the 80m off the trail to go to the highest point. Saw lots of deer hoofprints in the snow.Alan Moore10/12/2017
From Higher Burwadsley along Sandstone Trail. Bit annoyed about getting spooked by activity and missing out Peckforton Point en-route. Summit set back from the edge. Lovely views between the hailstorms.Jake99425/11/2017
The railway and tanks were evidently to do with the water works. I decided to ascend using the track. The gradient started gentle and then got steeper and steeper and steeper. Pleasant woods but no view.Campbell Singer17/10/2017
Short walk to the top, views obscured by trees.Sihuws15/09/2017
Much as Dugswell. A nice walk on generally easy clear paths. A few rooty bits but nothing too bad. There's a lot of interesting nan made features lower down. What was the railway for. What are all those oil tanks...stig_nest18/07/2017
Parked on Stone House Lane then took a footpath west to pick up the Sandstone Trial to Bulkeley Hill then continued passed the scrap yard and went into the woods after the third kissing gate. Picked up the track easily and ambled to summit of Peckforton Point.Dugswell222/05/2017

3rd hill of 7 today on a route from Ridley to Tilston, climbing Ridley Bank and Peckforton Point, looping around a scrap heap area to drop onto the Sandstone trail, following this with great views over the Cheshire plain and then headed up past some nice large Sweet Chestnut trees to the summit, complete with an embedded stone. Descent to a track, meeting the Sandstone trail further on but veering off when it turns for Raw Head.. Next hill: Harthill.Dazingdale25/02/2017

Most recent of many near visits. The actual summit is accessible but in private woodland about 100m WNW of the 'conventional' summit and view point, which are beside the public footpath and Sandstone Trail. Must wander off piste for 100m some time!mikh4326/02/2014

My second day on the Sandstone trail and the hardest but here on Bulkeley hill there was a gorgeous view over to the East/North east. At least on this hill I could walk whereas when i got to Raw head the conditions were atrocious with snow upto my thighs.Dazingdale23/03/2013
from Sandstone trail with VivJohnIvor11/07/2011
Date estimated. Winter walk with Liverpool post office ramblers. Bitterly cold frosty day. Summit at (or near) top of old steep railtrack (for old quarry?).ianandbarbara03/01/1992
Being pedantic I cant count this as I skimmed the summit by a fraction (5m lower?) it would appear whilst walking the Sandstone Trail in 1982Chris Pearson17/08/1982
