With Chase Wood Hill, by the light of dusknordicstar03/10/2017
From Weston under Penyard, up lane and into pleasant woodland. Just before exiting woodland a track heads off right running parallel with edge of fields and to the high point. No views this time of year due to dense foliage..Campbell Singer18/08/2017
From Chase Wood Hill on ROW, then found previously mentioned MTB tracks without difficulty. No views of anywhere though, so a bit disappointing.milimana15/07/2017
From Chase Wood Hill on FPs and then single track MTB path to north of fence all the way to summit. HP few metres north of path.PeterD14/04/2017
From the church, large car park (not for the public!). Mapped paths then permissive along edge of woodland to top. Yew 2m or so N of path, must be 150m E of OS 200m spot height.jonglew18/03/2017
base of yew in coppice a few m n of permissive path along ridge. Foggy and mild.Denise 08/01/2017
Woodland paths from Merrivale, good path in open woodland of Beech, Oak, Sweet Chestnut and firs along ridge. A mild, misty morning, trees dripping.RichardM08/01/2017
Similar to Arranc. Parked by the fork in the road at SO63056 23190 and walked up track to gate at SO 62226 22920. Across a couple of fields and then climbed fence into woods where I found a good path which more or less crosses the summit. Followed path back to the point where I climbed the first gate so this is perhaps a better route than to trespass across the farmland. A sign in the woods suggests a fairly enlightened view towards public access.Herbert Anchovy28/09/2016
From industrial estate, up on good tracks. Saw Wild Boar near the top.rhalstead31/07/2016
From wnw, Penyard Lane, good paths, winter evening. Hp N side of woodland path.RHW30/01/2016
Delightful walk from the west in still misty mild November Monday. Right girl at base of hill then within 50m our so there is a path left, not marked on even the 1:25k that climbs steeply up to the crest and continues east just about20/25m inside the woodland to the north of the open field. This continues to the highest point. With Colin Henshall from Tewkesbury.vegibagger02/11/2015
By church and past Lawns Farm, over a gate and up to top over grass with cattle.arranc26/08/2015
