Parked at triangle on road to SW. easy up and down. Cloud right at top.KC17/03/2020
From lane near Lindley Hall - across field to old Oak - Through newly planted woodland the hulks of old dead Oaks still punctuating the landscape, the along the concessionary path to the Aero Generator and out onto access land. Headed to the tree plantation that identifies this hill from afar. Mist swirling around us as we reach the summit and trig. Descend north side then circle / return along the west flank.briandavies14/10/2019

Limited parking near The Hollies to the west..short up and down, easy grass gives way to thick heather/moss higher upN.Morters05/04/2019
Solo. Up narrow road from the south to park at junction at SO330935. Solo. Directly up hillside to ground by cairn, which is the highest point, as well as the nearby trig point.pwbellarby07/03/2019
4/5 from Linley Hill. Slightly challenging or at least long navigation. Approached from track to South. Met by many stubborn looking bullocks. Decided that straight through them was the quicker way up. Bit foggy on top. Had a cup of Earl grey in the small shelter. A nice moment as I was in a rush to meet friends at the stiperstones Inn.tumpawumpa28/12/2018
From sw up stream, down due w and along path. Low mist, no visibility. Warm, still. Rounsfell27/12/2018
Steeply up from grass triangle. 5 red kites hanging in the wind. also one buzzard. nice views all round.gettingonabit02/10/2018
Parked on green triangle as some others then up bridleway before The Hollies then heather bash to top but came down to north on quad track and picked up same route in higher up . Fantastic views . Lots of cows roaming who had to be shooed away twice .Mark Sims14/09/2018
From lane junction to SW. Wet but conditions added to the realism, one of the hills in the distance (Stiperstones?)looking a little bit like Beinn a' Chaolais. On to Cefn Gunthly.Wycombe Wanderer06/09/2018
From gated road to SW. good tracks up through gorse, easy going through moorland, but much harder through heather to reach top. Good ATV track down to north and col with Cefn Gunthly which also ascended.PeterD18/08/2018
Parked on upper part of triangle after speaking to landowner (lovely lady). I'm pleased I met her because it felt like I was almost trespassing. Not a popular walking area I suspect. Steep climb up in thigh- deep heather. Summit has large cairn.Dangerous Dave08/08/2018
Parked on triangle thern did a loop to west and ascended from north coming off by south ridge. Excellent little hill.SS25/07/2018
Past the ruin on my usual route. Bitterly cold on top. With KBEstig_nest07/01/2018
8/12M parked where 2 minor roads meet on triangle of grass.robertphillips19/10/2017
From Cefn Gunthly straightforward descent and then up onto top. Absolute silence, not even birds singing, and great views all round. Three hills done (inc Black Rhadley) and only saw two other people all day. Stiperstones looked busy though!Stuzinho02/09/2017
Trig, cairn and windshelter on top, with lovely purple heather around. Windy and showery. N/S ridge traverse. Second visitDenise 19/08/2017

Tight parking, great views from summitcjo24/03/2017
Parked at end of lane opposite Pitchords, walked up lane to information board at junction and stream at 330 935, says Heath Mynd is all open access land so made a beeline to top, returned via faint path heading south off top making easier waking out of heather.dgresty15/03/2017

From grass triangle to SW & then more or less straight up the hillside with Shaky. Decent viewpoint but uninspiring walk up.NotReallyABagger24/09/2016
Parked at SO329935 on grass triangle beyond the gate. Took what appears to be the standard route, taking in Cefn Gunthy afterwards.Herbert Anchovy22/09/2016
Same route as others from SW. Fairly obvious path at least to start. Great panoramic views. Probably not one most people climb - they're missing out!twg2709/07/2016
Mitchell's Fold car park circular. Revisited with SG after Cefn Gunthly.Smudge26/03/2016
2/5. Solo. Parked on grassy triangle and headed straight for the summit. Steep grass slopes which turned heather about half way up. Cold but good weather otherwise.mike.hoult25/02/2016
Climbed using bus service 553, from bus stop at Llan turn. Stupidly zigzagged up the steep west face, but descent on path from the north much easier. Excellent Bronze Age cairn on the summit, although it has been messed about with. Terrific panoramic views taking in Malverns, Herefordshire, Radnor Forest, poss Drygarn Fawr(?), Pumlumon, Corndon Hill, Stiperstones and Long Mynd.thesweetcheat16/01/2016
From the track end to the SW at SO329938, ascending via the track then the W side before making a direct descent to the start point. Route and write-up at:
Start ~ 330935. Good track & path to summit. The hills a great view point, lots of rain squall's around but none came over us. With Wombourne. & Pat.steve hudson06/11/2015
Parked at GR330935. Good track and path to summit. Excellent view point. With SH and Pat.wombourne06/11/2015
There's a good track up to the top of Heath Mynd starting from the farm track at 338 935. Part of a mega circuit from Hope School, following tracks to Crows Nest Dingle, then to Castle Ring hill fort (it has to be seen, and is a fine view point). Then along the ridge to Stiperstones, via all the rocky knobbles, then to Heath Mynd, Corndon Hill and back past Mitchell's Fold along Stapeley Hill and minor roads. Watch out for insane, aggressive dogs at Little Cefn Farm and Corndon Farm (if you have problems with them, report the problem to Powys County Council).Gill10/10/2015

Last of my 10 shropshire Marilyns. Weather was amazing, lovely walkLaura.W04/06/2015
Parked on grassy triangle at SO 330 935, beyond Moreswood, and took the easy track above The Hollies until the turn towards Linley Big Wood, ascending Heath Mynd SSW from the col. Easy descent directly back to the parking triangle apart from gorse and a steep lip at the end. (5/5)Phreerunner18/03/2015
Felt like a slog up from the top cattle grid on a miserable dayBramley13/02/2015
Parking at a very muddy SO 32962 93820, room for one car, 4x4 ideally. Cefn Gunthly first then Heath Mynd. HP at summit cairn 6m N of trig pillar.jonglew25/01/2015
