From Whitehill- by following the track via Whitehill Wood the route to the HP was an enjoyable springtime woodland walk. The broad rides were already showing plenty of flowers. Back down the broad ridge, improved pasture, to Wonstanow House, better parking in Wonstanow on wide lanes, then quiet lanes back to Whitehill. Paths seem well marked, and more than shown on my map, in this area.pwheeler22/04/2018
Parked at entrance to Whitehill farn, up track and Bridleway to woods, line from here difficult to follow, overgrown. Not used as a bridleway anymore clearly, odd fallen tree. Made up to higher track and from junction took to path leading to summit, that was good. Continued to trig and then on to bridleway at GR481118. Thought we take the line back thru Orles Wood to start, whilst BW began well it disappeared in area of new plantings, found line thru the wood but wet and overgrown, not the pleasant stroll we'd expected.nordicstar04/10/2017
Not as easy as the map suggests. Paths pretty overgrown in places.jenx04/10/2017
Up the bridleway from SO485110 to 4785 1219 where an unmarked path went NNE up to the ridge path. Then ESE past the summit and trig and SSE to meet the track at 4817 1198. NW to get back to the bridleway at 481120 then back S to the car.Jim.Fothergill29/07/2017
From start of BW, past temperature controlled store, good path all the way except for last few metres which was well trodden down. Also visited trig.PeterD22/04/2017
With K and A in dark. From farm entrance to south. Bridleway through wood difficult but passable.Ashley08/12/2016
Parking for a couple of cars at the beginning of the bridleway at Worthybrook. Then bridleway plus forest tracks to the summit Long Hill in the trees then continued along to Longhill Wood trig.Dugswell223/10/2016
From Wonastow war memorial (no run-ins with any farmers fortunately). Easy walk on good paths almost right to the top, followed by a good thrash around in the woods.Tony J08/04/2016
From end of Watery Lane, Monmouth. Path goes through a garden, to the left of a barn conversion. Followed forest tracks and eventually found a path up to the trig point and then close to the presumed summit. Did a bit of bramble bashing but it was fairly futile. Returned by same route.Herbert Anchovy17/06/2015
Nice along forest track from WorthybrookRamblingpaul13/04/2015
Don't park next to war memorial at Wonastow unless you want to seriously upset the local farmer!! Unfortunately, I did and had a ten minute lecture from him.Campbell Singer10/02/2015
2/7 Climbed today but difficulty getting to top like the rest. The trig point is a little below the topFergalh23/11/2014
Approach from S. Thick woodland with brambles, best stick to the paths. Summit in woodland, thick undergrowth.Adrian26/10/2014
From 473115GordonAdshead09/07/2014
Parked at war memorial, easy walk up bridleway past the chicken farm. The summit is in an overgrown thicket, I had to resort to crawling at times.Chris Peart24/09/2013
From Monmouth climbed from the south and returned on Offa's Dyke. Very muddy fields made it a bit of a trudge.rhalstead27/01/2013
Parked in Monmouth and walked out along Watery Lane and Offa's Dyke Path, climbing up through a wet and muddy King's Wood to the summit; returning via Wonastow Brake. Farily good views south from the top and also over Monmouth on the way off the hill.jonglew02/12/2012
Parked by war memorial in Wonastow. There are only so many brambles that one can tramp about to be sure of "claiming" the summit.clivevilla06/09/2011
Parked at memorial, then public paths all the way. Which bramble is on the true summit? Quite nice walk really - my favourite of the day.Martin R31/07/2011
Parked with permission at the Priory. Overgrown paths to edge of wood then tracks. Top is past trigchrisbien09/05/2011
Parked to NE. RH bend would be better. Walked up private lane as no sign of path in field. Track all the way to the topdestaylor10/09/2010

Parked near the War Memorial on Wonastow and walked up through the fields from there. Near the trig one is confronted by ferns and brambles but there is a track up to the trig point from the east.Father Ted03/04/2010
walked from Dingestow along the well sign posted bridleway.Their are some fine views to be had at brakes through the woodland.The only down point is a summit covered in nettles but still a nice little hillhodder11/04/2009
