From Waseley Hills Country pk, up via lane and N. Worcs way, back using marked routes to visitor centre. Cloudy but clear enough to make out Barden Hill, Clee Hills (just cloud topped). Went near top a few years ago on a walk from Beacon Hill car pk to Woodhill so made sure today. A nice half hour.pwheeler02/01/2020
Great little hill - been past it numerous times on the M5 but finally had a stroll up it. Good paths, and excellent views all around from the top. Third (and best) of three Tumps done today.Stuzinho05/10/2019

On 14.5 mile run from Pedmore. Lots of dogs beyond summit.campagvelocet30/04/2019
Easy stroll up from visitor centre with my wife & daughter. Bitterly cold wind for April, but the stunning views made up for it. Can imagine this is a right honeypot on a warmer day.wheresthepath13/04/2019
Picked a way cautiuously through a pack of about 30 Boxer dogs and their owners in the picnic area who had come from far and wide to share a walk and boxer stories. My wariness justified as boxers are affectionate to their owners who they defend and can be aggressive to strangers. They feature in top ten attacks by dogs, but then they are very popular, so there are a lot of them.Luckily this lot were well treated / behaved pussycats enjoying the county park who nicely promote that dogs can run free here. Spotted a potential new Tump from the summit -Rubery Hill rising out of the urban housing to the east next to Birmingham Great Park -went and climbed it - later checking shows it is only around P26.Chris Pearson06/04/2019

5th top of 9 on a 28.7km traverse from Stourbridge Junction to Longbridge station ,climbing Wychbury Hill, The Four Stones, Walton Hill and Romsley Hill. I re-joined the North Worecestershire path, over the M5 and took a path direct to the toposcope @ SO 97223 77899. I also checked out the high ground to the South in the conifer spinney and recorded 280m there. Descent North to plaque, stating that this is the Source of the River Rea and then I veered off to have a drink and fill up my water bottles at the Visitor centre cafe before proceeding to head for Frankley Beeches...Dazingdale01/09/2018

Expensive cp on a Sunday but great vantage point.£1.70 for 20 minutes it took to get up and down. That's if you're honest. I was.Campbell Singer09/07/2011
From visitor Centre car park at SO 97159 78249. The route passes the visitor centre building then shoots steeply uphill to a gate and the summit is about 150 metres further on. There were lots of folk milling round but surprisingly the summit itself was free. There’s a toposcope at the highest point but the overcast weather meant the views were rubbish. On my way down I passed a young child with his grandparents. The granddad was stamping on a curious plastic contraption that sent a series of plastic rockets zooming up into space. Why they’d chosen to set it up on the footpath when there were miles and miles of open ground all round them was a bit of a mystery.David Gradwell30/10/2009
