Well worth while but walk with someone experienced. Be careful descending especially. Wonderful views from the top.

I love this hill, very popular but at 6 in the morning on a spring day you can see for miles once you reach the top. Superb for fitness test and a local trip to peace and quiet.

Normally I go here from the start of BST and this year I was horrified to see what was being done to the woodlands around the Wrekin. All I can say is it looks like Vietnam after the Americans left. Felt like Treebeard when he stumbled across the damage caused in Isengard Big shame and now im moving on to... More

Up and down in an hour its a nice exercise walk. You get puffed out going up and your legs muscles are aching, going down is a nice release.

We got hit by the weather but nice walk and great views - apparently 14 counties on a good day?! Take a drink though.

Went here on the advice of the hotel staff. Off to be there and not have a dog but a really good climb and great way to get the day off to a start. Enjoy.

We love this walk. Strenuous at times but you can take it as your own pace. We can do it up and down in less than 1hr. If we have the kids with us obviously takes a little longer as kids stop at top for a snack and juice - we have before now taken the kite and stayed up... More

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
