New Year day walk, first hill of 2019. Nice summit area, tracks through woods to top and a trig divert. With Jenx and Bryhernordicstar01/01/2019
A nice start to the new year. Fairly open woodland higher up, so easy to cut through.jenx01/01/2019
Easy forest roads from the entrance to Blackthorn Wood, then short detour at the top. Bluebells barely out yet which was a shame - those in Worcestershire much more advanced.milimana29/04/2018
With K following forestry track from south.Ashley11/09/2017
From Covenhope Farm to South. FP at SO411644 impassible in summer. Walk around southern edge of wood and climb over fence to access forest track at SO409646 (just before field fence/hedge). Did not find any - wood cutting tracks - from SE. Easiest access from track to North - wood quite open and vegetation no problem)carole engel29/07/2017
Parked at entrance to Blackthorn Wood. Took an overgrown shortcut across Church Wood (not advised) & a good one from SO408649 N. Several woodcutting vehicle tracks from around SO410653 heading NNW then easy going beween spaced trees to summit. 3.3 miles, 75 mins.Jim.Fothergill04/09/2016
7/8 Crossed field and entered forest than followed track until rough track uphill at bend in path, steep and not easy an afterwards final 300 metres is difficultFergalh06/01/2015
Climbed via Blackthorn Wood, Church Wood and Mere Hill Wood. Then direct from track junction to SE.Chris Peart14/08/2014
Parked roadside at entrance to Blackthorn Wood. Good path to Church Wood then woodland tracks and a bit of rough stuff to summit. Top of hill is not marked or defined but was reasonably obvious. Diverted on return to pick up Hill Barn trig. Confronted by farmer who was not at all happy with us being on his land, but as only 50m from pillar let us proceed.jonglew03/11/2013
with Tony & Devon. From Shobdon Hill then finished at Aymestrey.Stuart Hyde08/09/2012
Parked at the bottom of the track, no navigation issues.JohnStoneham12/08/2012

Bluebells in wood.arranc31/01/2012
Parked at entrance to forest to SSE. Easy walking and two interesting forested huts not too far from summit which is flattish and could be near either of two deciduous trees but had a good walk around.Dugswell226/11/2011
P at Blackthorn Wood. Used top track counterclockwise. Easy walking at the top.chrisbien21/07/2011
From SO 41320 63800 made a detour to get the trig point on the way down. Stunning amount of foxgloves around track near summit.
From the lane at SO 41320 63800. Approached from the track to the NW of the highest point at SO407655. Straightforward.summitsup01/03/2009
Forest track before the last bit through off track a dark, coniferous forest. The top bit is clearer with occasional deciduous trees but no clear summit or views.clivevilla23/03/2008
