On this return visit we were VERY disappointed to find so much dog mess along the paths and also hanging in plastic bags from the branches of the trees. Having been a dog owner in the past for 15 years I' m disgusted with the dog owners responsible for spoiling such a lovely landmark. We will not be visiting again.

It's a hard slog up to the top but it is worth it, with stunning views all around. Take your time and persevere and you will be rewarded. If you're relatively fit you should be able to get up to the top. Our trek up here was slightly ruined by inconsiderate people who decide to use the trig point and... More

Many different walks for all abilities. A small cafe halfway up with a tiny loo. It gets steep near the top but it's worth it. The views are fabulous, I think you can see five counties!

As a family we love walking up the Wrekin. Fantastic challenge. Great stopping for a drink and/or ice cream at half way house. Then picnic at the top, with fantastic views. We usually make a day of it.

A great walk and fantastic views from the top ! Quite steep in places but it's easy to have plenty of stops on the way up . Getting to the top is worth it on a clear day as the views are just great . Very nice atmosphere up there , very calm.

Just do it you won't regret it! Took us 35minutes to get to the top... Others it took over an hour. Whatever your ability it's worth the views at the top!

Have walked up the Wrekin, walked around the Wrekin several times now. It is a steep hill but in several stages, well worth the walk once you get to the top and see the view. There is a small refreshment stand half way up with toilets, it's nothing special but a mention of an ice cream gets my youngest walking.

Can't believe we haven't visited this attraction previously considering how close we live. I will start by saying that this is a very steep climb but very enjoyable. About 1 minute from J7 of the M54 with easy parking on road side or on free car park opposite the start of the trail. As in other reviews we made it... More
