My lad who's 8 walked up with me (38) it took 45mins. Steep but worth it for the views. Will be going up again very soon. Going down we took the steeper path and took a lot less time down. Was great couple of hours spent.

We made it to the top with a 3 year old. Not recommended to walk up without a bottle of water and don't attempt to take a pushchair. The views are great and it's a achievement when you reach the top.

I have been up the Wrekin many times before and it's a great landmark for Shropshire. Enjoyed my last walk up there over the Christmas holidays. I walked off some of the Christmas dinner! Always feel better once I've completed the challenge, blows away a few cobwebs!

Local landmark, which is a must for anyone visiting Shropshire. However try not to wake the sleeping giant. Ensure your wearing suitable walking boots and outdoor wear. Gets very busy in the summer and new years eve!

Have been up and around the Wrekin too many times to mention and have enjoyed it on every occasion. You can start from the car park or road at the bottom and there are several ways up and around it. Whichever way you choose doesn't really matter. The main thing is that you enjoy it! The shortest walk around the... More

The Wrekin is a great place to take the family for some fresh air. Parking is free, but the car park can be busy/full at the weekend if the sun is shining. There is a main route up and down that most people take, but there are paths off all over the place that are well worth an explore. People... More

The wrekin is I believe the smallest mountain in the country. The path from the car park is well marked and can be taken at a pace to suit. The views are worth the climb and the combo radars as you you walk is second to none. Great for a frosty Boxing Day or New Year's Day walk.
