A nice walk for everyone. If you walk up the main track there is a steep slope towards the top. However you can walk around the Wrekin if you wish and there are various ways of walking up. Views from the top are great.

A walk up the Wrekin is a regular (ish) treat for our family. If you can, try to go mid week as it's a lot less busy.
