The hill's not big but it is steep and it is a challenge for those who aren't that fit, or even those who are but aren't used to hills. And for those that are, stick a 5kg weight in your back pack and turn it into a workout! Its not technical at all and the main route is easy to... More

The Wrekin Hill I can see from my house. It is a barometer. Shrouded in cloud usually means rain or damp. The view of the hill and its changing manner is with me always.

The peace and quiet of looking out from the top of the Wrekin is wonderful. Each time you go up the view is different.

A great day out. Take a picnic to eat at the summit. Need dry weather to really make the best of it but a wonderful free day.

The views from the wrekin are gorgeous. When I used to live in the area I would drive here just so I could run around the area. I've also been for walks with friends and if I'm ever in the area again I will be returning.

Depending upon your fitness; you may get to the top in under 30 mins, or it may take you an hour or more. There is plenty of free parking, but gets very busy at the weekends, and in the summer after 9am can be tricky to park. It is possible to park at The Ercall and walk along, or, for... More

Its just a hill really. Don't get why its so popular , I slipped and rolled down to the bottom, currently sat in A+E. lol. Also its really steep and anyone other the age of 50 will really struggle to get up it. It's also full of dogs running up and down everywhere first of all im allergic

A good 2 hour walk from start to finish. Good nearby parking, but would recommend getting there by mid morning as it gets full up (there is on street parking around about though). It's a medium intensity walk (we are regular hill walkers)but well worth it as the views from the top are amazing.

Park at the base of The Wrekin, free to park, and take a nice walk up the mountain, paths are not particularly level but sufficient for most. Quite steep in parts and lovely no matter what the weather. Allow yourself a good hour to walk up and back.

It only takes about 20 to 25 minutes for a walk up but well worth it for the view. You do not have to be super fit but it can make you out of breath. Wear some decent walking shoes
