Logged Descriptions  (logged by 36 users)ByDate of Ascent
First hill of the day on cycle from Stoke-on-Trent to Derby. A variety of paths give options of spiral or direct ascent of the now wooded spoil heap. I thought the high point was at the NE side of the summit, not the toposcope.RichardM13/08/2019
Large free car park. Short circular walk encompassing the lake. Both ascent and descent very steep, the latter a mapped track.jonglew08/08/2019
Parked in Central Forest Park. Walked up path to top. Topograph appears intact or has been refurbished. Trees prevent some of the views...can imagine much better experience in Winter. Descended SW on some very slippy clay which wasn't the best idea considering it was raining.iron_sun12/07/2019
Parked in Central Forest Park. Followed footpath up, slipped over in clay? on the way down.ironwolf12/07/2019
On paths from the south east, from the car park on Chell Street. Descent to north on paths.Moorponder10/01/2019
Parked opposite park entrance and followed track to summit.Ramblingpaul04/12/2018
From Sneyd Hill, up good paths. Good view of tbe lake. Back down to Stoke station.bevandy11416/11/2018
Central Forest Park CP. Short steep walk up SE side. Some views but mostly blocked by trees. Litter not as bad as previous baggers experience. Now walking to Sneyd Hill. 42m ascentRoguePulsar05/09/2018
Access path from the north to park behind houses then on to hill paths. Bottle of Coke zero and about sixth of bottle of Morgan s rum left on viewpoint topograph for anyone who fancied some. Plus myriad of detritus and broken bottles.. Sad sight but beautiful viewpoint.vegibagger28/03/2018
Even the topograph has been ruined by someone having a fire on it.Mark Sims01/05/2017
From Hanley bus station. Straightforward enough once the path up is found. A decent view is gained where the trees are not in the way. At what point does a man made structure become a hill though. Even with the trees and grass it still feels artificial.stig_nest14/03/2017
A surprising urban country park: Central Forest Park - an award winning creation by Stoke Council in 1970s from 3 large coal spoil tips, water filled marl pit, old railways and decaying mine buildings. At its heart is a lake with a large car park and today 30 + Canada Geese. I took the direct steep line up through scratchy trees- as summit approached so did an increase in the amount of summit thrown beer cans & rubbish (and a sleeping bag from someone who had taken summit bagging literally?).Teenage summit drinking parties perhaps.Chris Pearson21/12/2016
I can remember when it was a 'bald' slag heap over 30 years ago. What a fantastic change the trees have made. Compared to how it used to be (an industrial eyesore), it was like walking up an enchanted forest on the circular path to the top. Pity the summit view is obscured. With Julie, Liam, Billy & Polly the dog.David Evans31/10/2016
Parked by the lake then paths of sorts to the summit. This completed the Stoke TUMPs, saving the best one to last.Dugswell219/10/2016
From big car park by the lake. The only topo I have seen with a tree close by that obscures much of the view.clivevilla22/07/2016
Free parking! Walk on paths around east side to take path up to top. Some topograph points now obscured by trees.arranc27/05/2016
Wee gem of a hill walk from the car park by the lake, for my 3rd and final Stoke Tump.Minto29/04/2016
From Central Forest car park. Took track that winds up the hill, rather than direct ascent.PeterD22/03/2016
Started at car park to SE. Round end of lake then steep and slippery muddy tracks up wood. Topo on top and grassy knoll 35m away of similar height.Aye Jimmy08/03/2016
Accessed from car park off A5272. Located in lovely urban park with pond, swings etc and a cafe. Good path curving round hill to summit. Remarkable transformation from an old slag heap. County of Stoke conquered in under an hour!Campbell Singer23/02/2016
Never climbed a slag heap before, then two come along together. (Sneyd Hill the other).ngthack31/03/2015
Entertaining walk from Stoke. May have climbed this whilst at Uni here, but that was a long time ago & it's unlikely I did it sober...DanHolme07/02/2015
From SJ886487 via a rising traverse of the north face. A fascinating spot.summitsup19/12/2014
Short walk from car park, slag heap, definately man made.rhalstead02/03/2014
Popular park: direct assault on SE face is quite entertaining. Viewfinder on summit.RHW22/02/2014
