Solo(comma) walk. Lovely secret summit Fidget03/08/2023
Better view than anticipated from the summit, but that's partly to do with the time of year. There is a scary swing one a quarry and someone has build a shelter in the woods, with table and chairs.thevetchlings06/04/2021
From NW, gated path up thru wood, one of the large pines marks HPRHW17/06/2018
Approached via permissive path in woodland strip to northwest. Parking awkward on embanked single track road but did find small layby to east. Pleasant direct ascent through mature trees and our first wild bluebells of the year. Interesting earthworks - quarries? At the top is a large pine, surrounded by beech and chestnut, with steep drop ( quarry?) to south. No view from top but there are views through gaps in trees as ascend.Denise 07/04/2017
Permissive path up NW side of hill through band of woodland with Bluebells and Ramson. Parking difficult. Reversed into large rock hidden in the grass with a nasty crunch resulting in significant dent in spare wheel well of poor car.RichardM07/04/2017
Clearly this is a popular walk as the Dartington estate have provided a permissive path with steps and way-marking. Lots of interesting earthworks and vegetation on the way up. Not much use as a beacon now as the summit is within mature woodland. A triplet of huge conifers mark what I take to be the nominal top - must have been a striking landmark before all the other trees grew up. A worthwhile visit on a sunny summer evening. Best approached through the wooded strip to the North West.M3WDD18/06/2016
