From Town & Country Trail CP, SE to Hill Farm, then Wye Valley Walk to gate and across meadow to trig. Decent views SE. On to Penyard Park.milimana15/07/2017
Solo walk from Ross to have a look at the hillfort. Approached along the Wye Valley Walk, the skirted the rampart clockwise. The ground drops most steeply on the west. North of an area of cliffs (quarried) a narrow track heads uphill towards the summit. There would be extensive views from the trig but for the trees, although almost inevitably May Hill is visible - I'm convinced it can be seen from everywhere.thesweetcheat03/06/2017

As others, parked at Hill Farm and then followed the obvious track for a bit before heading through the woods and hopping over the fence. Lots of badger damage to the pasture.Herbert Anchovy11/09/2014
A circular walk starting in the centre of Ross on Wye and working up through fields into Chase Wood. We took a little detour to the trig point. Found that the path further down was blocked by a fallen tree and then that the road to Cubberley is private, so we had to take the long way around. The river Wye had burst its banks and flooded the last part of the footpath, so we found ourselves trapped in a field. Fortuately, we found a makeshift bridge (plank!) over a little brook and escaped onto a different footpath and made it back safely, although we did the last half hour of the walk in semi darkness! With Keith.islamidget02/01/2014
Parked at Hill Farm, up track to gate, into field, steeply up to trig.Chris Peart20/09/2013
Short walk from Tudorville, what a shame the last 10 paces haven't been made a permissive route.rhalstead27/01/2013

I enjoyed this bag. As I come out of the woods I scared a healthy looking fox next to the trig point. Unfortunately electronic cameras have a downside in that by the time the lens cover is pulled back, the lens extended and the electronic warmed up the foFather Ted23/04/2005
