Nice ascent walking around and up from the car park. Fantastic views.midlife_hiking18/08/2021
This hill had been prominent in my views from all five tumps to the E today. Standard walk from free NT car pk off A362, following diversion signs to allow erosion to repair. Marvellous views from this hill fort summit. With time to spare, I continued to the NE knoll at 198m. and returned, using tracks on the steep slopes of the main hill, to make a pleasant return. Sunny and good visibility now 4 p.m.) after a rather hazy morningpwheeler03/08/2021
From car park to south and steeply up this great little hill and fortMark Sims01/07/2021
Walked over all the highpoint from what I could tell before visiting the TP. Here for the trigpoint TP:UK log: YSM0774 Cley Hill. Parked at ST 83787 44257 for a lovely if a tad steep walk up to the trigpoint. However I did take a more direct approach and there are lots of different paths. Brilliant views.thejackrustles23/06/2021
Superb place from which to watch sunset- clear skies but very cool breeze. Grassy summit with trig (not at HP) and munching cows. Accessed from free NT carpark at base.Denise 25/04/2021

A hot walk in full sun from the car park. We followed the route through the gate by the building and then round the hill rather than going straight up. Lots of cows on the summit but they weren't near the trig point. Fabulous views from the trig pointThomasJoseph30/07/2020
