The end of a walk from Bicknoller via Black Hill and the Triscombe Stone. By the time we got up here the blowy drizzle had turned to proper unpleasant rain, so we didn't linger as long as I would have wanted. The cairns are decent if unspectacular examples.thesweetcheat03/11/2018
Run from the car park to the east of Cothelstone over Cothelstone on to Wills Neck and out to Black Hill. Came back the same way but with the addition of Lydeard Hill. Cold and fresh with a north easterly wind. Good visibility could make out Dartmoor and the Brecon Beacons. Not much wildlife just Chaffinches and Pheasants. Time taken 1 hour 40 minutes for 11 miles.isabelle28/10/2018

From Nether Stowey on the A39, headed south via Marsh Mills towards Plainsfield. 1.5Km after the Marsh Mills junction, turn right on metalled road into forest and follow the road along Cockercombe for 4Km to the CP at the Triscombe Stone.

Planned to start from car park to the north but having put Tricombe in to Sat Nav found I was wrong side of the hill. No suitable parking in Trinscombe other than Blue Bell pub car park for customers only so headed south past quarry and parked on off road parking opposite PROW. No obvious path off PROW up derelict fence through Bagborough Plantation before picking up decent path heading east along tree line. Would have been better to have gone higher to PROW and picking up Macmillan Way West to summit. After visiting trig point and highest point looked for tumulus to the WNW. Could not find in heather looks lower than trig anyway.SteveSmith20/12/2016

Nice 12.3 Mile walk of the Quantocks starting from Holford, ascended Dowsborough to its forested summit, descended to road south, walked along paths by roads up to Main ridge and followed obvious path up to Wills Neck, descended steeply to Triscombe, then followed hillside paths back to road, ascended Black Hill, along ridge to Beacon Hill trig, then descended east back to Holford, dull and grey weather.DanTrig10/06/2016
