Loads of parking above the shoreline. Easy pasture climb but last 80 ms not enjoyable. Overgrown forest ride helps. Great views on descent.Campbell Singer10/02/2024
From the picnic area car park at SN 87000 89206. Took the Glyndwr Way SSE to the forest, then followed the forest edge SW/SSW to the fence corner. A short push through the trees brought me onto a wide firebreak. Followed this SW to its highest point, where a gap in the trees brought me N up to the conifer-choked highest point. Then retraced my steps to the Glyndwr Way, following it down to a track east, and up the RoW N, cut through the forest. Then a forest bash over the 420m countour area. Then took track north to the lane by the reservoir, and W along it back to the car. All rather an unpleasant conifer bash! Solo.Man of Kernow112/12/2020
Parked on the verge just before the bend to the NNE, through gate and headed on a bearing. Pasture until just before the top where there is a little fighting with trees.clivevilla08/11/2019
Approached from north. Short thrash through spikey and wet pines to indistinct point within trees.Denise 09/02/2019
