I parked at Wookey Hole and ran up Ebbor Gorge to the summit. I followed the Monarch's Way back to the car. The weather was breezy with fleeting glimpses of the sun. The cloud was low so no views were had. I did see plenty of wildlife which included: Woodpigeons, Grey Squirrels, Ravens, Crows, Meadow Pipits Great Tits, Blue Tits, Jay , Wren, Robins, Magpies, Great Spotted Woodpecker and a Buzzard and Toad. Time taken 70 minutes for 6.5 miles.isabelle08/10/2019

Easy parking in Forestry car park. Short cut path starts directly opposite the car park entrance leading to the Monarch's Way. A good path leads upwards off this path to the summit col. When you reach the scattered trees at the top look for a bridlegate hidden behind them which crosses through the fence and makes an excellent short cut across the field.moorsman28/06/2017
