The Wrekin looks down over the farm, so we accepted the challenge, and up we went....from the steepest side! A very good workout, with amazing views.

I used to live near The Wrekin and used to walk and run up and around it frequently. The hill is the last of The Shropshire Hills, therefore overlooks the surrounding flat lands meaning that the view is not obstructed until the horizon in some directions. The main route is about 3 miles up and down and takes just over... More

Have walked up the Wrekin several times and it always worth the climb. You can see 4 or 5 counties from the top on a clear day. The climb can be steep in places so if you have walking difficulties perhaps take a stick. You can also walk all the way round the foot of the Wrekin, which is also... More

Beautiful walk through woods. We climbed to the top, lovely views. There are 3 marked routes to take depending on how far you want to go. Steep in places.

The Wrekin and the Ercall are two hills close to Wellington, Shropshire. The walk up the Wrekin is by a well maintained path and is a relatively easy hill walk providing magnificent views from the summit. There are plenty of walkers sharing the view, evidenced by all the cars in the car park and lining the approach rod. By contrast,... More

No matter what the weather the Wrekin gives you something to remember and a good workout too! Takes about 60 minutes from top to bottom if you follow the easy track past halfway house (ironically 3rd of the way up) some bits are quite steep - you might want to take a walking stick/cane if you need to steady yourself....

We love walking the Wrekin as a family, its a lovely steady climb, and the views are spectacular at the top. Nice for a picnic at the top.

The highest point on the North Shropshire plain. Travel due east and you will not find higher ground until you reach the Urals. Quite a mystical experience in the mists and well worth a visit is this volcanic remnant.

Fabulous forested hill with great walks. Wonderful views but roads very narrow which was a problem at times.
