A fairly hard walk but absolutely doable and so worth it for the views. The first part of the walk, and what you see from the car park, is a steep climb through forest, sometimes slippy in areas. When you come out the forest, thinking...More

Not a huge climb but great for families to climb and have a picnic on top with great views. Born 4 miles away the Skirrid was a regular for me. Fantastic views.

This mountain was suggested to me and it certainly didn’t disappoint. We end up with our 8 & 10 year old girls and they found it no problem. We took the longer (although muddier) route which was still only 4 miles from start to finish....More
