I went to the Wrekin for a nice walk as it was a fine summers day. I had a lovely time there. The walk was nice and peaceful, there was barely any dog poo that had been left there and was beautiful. When I had reached the top I had my lunch. There were very few people there which I... More

Nice steady walk with just a few steep parts, scenery from the top is beautiful with panoramic views of our beautiful Shropshire countryside, the hill has got ample parking at its Base with a lovely little teashop serving drinks and ice-creams about a third of the way up...look out for the rope swings which our boy loved spending 10mins chilling...

Nice, fairly gentle hill walk, beautiful views from the top over Telford (mainly fields and farms). Lovely to catch the sunset if you can.

Walked part way up - dropped down to walk all the way round. Also walked all the way up and dropped down to back side to walk the rest of the way round going left or right. There is also a pathway up from half way that most people don't know about - quiet for doggies - great for your... More

I regularly bike up and down the Wrekin, there are great views from the summit although I prefer to get further of the regular tracks and trails there are various set routes to walk and to mountain bike. Great for a few hours riding or walking in Shropshire. Note - The Wrekin is becoming more and more popular and parking... More

A must if in this vicinity. The views keep opening up as you climb and we were rewarded with fantastic views from the top.

I've been up the Wrekin a few times now, in various weather too. As you go up it does get steeper and steeper, but the main trail does flatten out in places which is nice when you're aching. Could be a challenging climb to some. View from top makes it all worthwhile. Nice to sit on one of the rocky... More

I love The Wrekin. It's not too big that it's a massive effort, yet it gives you a good little work out and gets the blood pumping. You can go up and over, up and down the same way or round the base. Great views. Always see someone you know on there. But I like a 7am walk. Nice and... More

At first you think 'it's not that steep' but then you go round the corner and it gets worse. It's reassuring when you get to half way but now they've shut the half way house so you can't have ice cream. You carry on and it just gets steeper and and steeper...and steeper. You finally reach the top and it's... More
