Mitcheldean to Littledean. Gate (new?) to N is clearly designed to discourage entrance/exit to the access forestry from the Hangman's Hill col.Smudge10/03/2019

Bagged as YSM148 Chestnuts Inclosure. First real rain of our trip at this one. Walked up the tracks listening to the birdsong and then found the pillar. Lovely woodland walk. Also found the cache, first ammo can seen in a while!thejackrustles24/04/2017
Parked by Pope's Hill and followed well marked tracksRamblingpaul19/04/2017
From road junction to east up muddy tracks. Trig is close to the path so with a GPS is fairly easy to find. Summit is by a fenced off well.clivevilla28/02/2017
Parked next to road junction to the east. Good tracks to within 30 ms of trig point which in September is well hidden to w of summit track.Campbell Singer23/09/2016

Approached from WNW on unclear permissive paths(?). HP either at the trig pillar or possibly next to the well. Latter seemed the higher.jonglew31/01/2015
Up from the east side via deeply muddy clay ey path that I had to walk up with legs40cm apart on the drier edges. Nice mossy summit trig with open plug.vegibagger28/12/2014
