A hard steep uneven trek to the top but well worth it. The views are stunning and the sense of achievement is gratifying. I included this in part of a circular 4 hour hike but you can get to the devil's in a much short less steep path from the adjacent car park. I wouldn't advise anyone with small children... More

If you want a day outdoors in the sunshine with lovely views and a nice pub nearby to relax in then head for the hills! Stiperstones is where we went and had a nice slow trek around the Shropshire Nature Reserve before heading to a lovely pub for lunch.

This is an ancient ridge giving views to Wales and all around the Shropshire hills area. The path along the top by the stone outcrops is pretty rocky and stout shoes are advised. There is a well made path running from the car park parallel to the ridge that takes you part way along and can be used as part... More

Very popular with walkers and those who love wild rugged places. Accessible by car, foot and bicycle but you need to be fit. Terrain is very stony and steep in places. Breathtaking.

The Stiperstones are part of a broad ridge in the Shropshire hills. What stands out is the rocky formations at the top, that can be accessed by a fairly short walk. It makes it a great walk for kids or those who struggle with longer walks as you can get to the exciting bits so quickly. There was free parking... More

Took my daughter for a gently 20 minute walk to the Stipperstones Rock formations from the carpark to the south east - which is free. Gently walk up though the ground gets rougher the higher you climb up. Amazing views of the Nature reserve, and an easy walk to manage for both daughter and father! Only wish we'd of had... More

There is a very handy car park situated just below the Stiperstones ridge walk and so it requires very little effort to walk up to the spot where the views are tremendous ...... enjoy!!

Visited the Stiperstones many times over the years and I never bored of the views of Long Mynd and over into the Welsh mountains. A landscape of heather and a rock strewn wilderness, topped by massive rock outcrops and formations, this is an amazing place to visit any time of year.

Just south of Shrewsbury, this is an areal of great unspoilt beauty, offering a variety of informed walks with rugged rock formation (The Stiperstones) and superb 360degree views and a variety of wild flowers. A small information centre and café close to the free carpark is open from 10.00am daily. The further landscape offers wonderful rural farming countryside and wild... More
