The Wrekin is a lovely 30 minute walk to get far-reaching views over the Shropshire countryside. The main trail on the hill should be accessible for most walkers, though it can be a little slippery on the descent so good walking boots are ideal. There are plenty of open spaces in the wooded sections on the trail up and on... More

Spent the day 'adventuring' with my two small kids up and over the hill. Was great. Paths are easily identifiable and the summit is a pleasure to picnic by. Small gripe is that I and another couple had to explain to a group of teenagers that they were not going to leave all their rubbish for the wind to bow... More

Very enjoyable walk. Lots of parking, spectacular views. The only thing it was lacking is a trail map at the bottom of the walk with some distance and elevation markers.

Fabulous place to walk - free parking, good path if you wish to walk the main path. An hours great cardio work out for all abilities, with fabulous views at the top. If you prefer your privacy and a harder walk their are other options. Cyclists seem to love it too. Natures gym, cant beat it.

For anyone of any age the Wrekin is a beautiful walk and has amazing views looking out to Telford and surrounding areas. Would recommend to anyone who loves walking, painting or photography.

The Wrekin stands out as soon as you approach Telford on the M54 from Birmingham. It's not a big hill but it doesn't need to be big when it juts out from flat fields. Located near Wellington, Telford, the Wrekin is a few minutes drive away. Parking is ample and the walk isn't overly difficult, although I thought my sibling... More

Well its quite a walk to the top and hard going for none walkers. We walk a lot, it was still testing. I would say anyone can get to the top if they take their time, its so worth it for the view. I would also recommend good footwear with grip as its a little slippery in parts. All in... More

A must if you are visiting Shropshire. I 'trained' for six weeks before I took some international visitors to see the views. The climb only takes 30 mins but if you are unfit it is wise to prepare, I found it quite easy despite my years. Sturdy footwear with a good grip is also a must. Just a word of... More

A most unusual hill - well worth the lengthy walk to the top. Great views. The legend says it fell off the spade of a giant.

The Wrekin is a steep climb but the views are well worth it. In fact because I find the 'false summits' frustrating, and also like to go down a different way to going up, I often choose to climb UP the short slope at the Needles Eye side - it is even steeper but the gentle walk DOWN the most...
