Great January walk from the Rough Tor car park over Showery Tor and Rough Tor. Apart from boggy ground leaving the car park was hard frozen ground which gave good going. Any icy patches were few and far bebeween.KevPalmer16/01/2024

From the car park to the NW, over Rough Tor and almost a straight line over the bridge up to Brown Willy. Got caught in a short sharp downpour on the top of Brown Willy whilst at the geocache, otherwise overcast and breezy. With Gillianrichard6925/08/2023
5 of 5 from the Jamaica inn. From Alex tor followed the farm track most of the way before going over rough ground before meeting the track for brown Willy. Lots of wild horses on the track. 13.5 miles round trip. Marilyn no. 76The-Z-Man25/07/2023

Out and back from Rough Tor car park to end of Brown Willy summit ridge, scrambling up Showery Tor, BW, Rough Tor and Little Rough Tor en route. Bracken high in places and appeared to be prime tick country, caught a couple of the buggers before they could bite! Great views and decent rocky summits with easy terrain in between.southern_rambler18/06/2023

Out and back to Brown Willy from Rough Tor car park via Rough Tor. With R.Dan Baddeley16/04/2022
A tour of the tors ... Showery, Rough, Brown Willy, Butter's and Garrow. Tried for Louden Hill but the farmer outside the farmhouse to the SE was resistant to passage along his farm track.summitter10/04/2022

Parked at the Forestry Carpark near Camelford. Up to Showery Tor then Brown Willy and returned via Rough Tor. Jackie went as far as Showery Tor. Easy walking mainly on clear paths. Blustery day, gale force on the summitclimbingkershaw05/04/2022

Drove to the usual carpark at SX 138 818 then walked to Rough Tor, Little Rough Tor and Showery Tor. From there we followed the permissive path to Brown Willy Trig and cairn. Same route in reverse for the return walk. Dry day, cloudy at first then brightened, hazy views. Approx 5 miles with 793ft of ascent. Walked with Lindsey.Skip24/11/2021

Wild horses looked mean, easy climb from the west, took the slightly trickier but quicker descent down the rocks.mrdolf03/09/2021

Walked to the summits of Brown Willy and Rough Tor with my cousin. A great sunny day with a mix of large rocks to climb at the top of Rough Tor and Showery Tor. A great and fun top to do Cornwall is.DavidHiner25/08/2021

With the kids. Could see the sea on both sides or Cornwall from the top. Windy but good day avoiding the showers.SlowOl31/07/2021
We followed a route from a book which maybe wasn't ideal. From Rough Tor car park, up to Showery Tor, down past the long house and over to the corner of the fence and followed a stone bank. Then we had to climb over a barbed wire fence which was not mentioned in the book! Up to Maiden Tor, then Brown Willy. Back via Little Rough Tor and Rough Tor. With Keith, Ross (5) and Callum (3).islamidget29/07/2021
