Touching memorial to the young girl who lost her life at Hillsborough is at the top of the hill. Such a sad story. The path to the top is quite steep but there are benches and lookout points as you go. Worth a look.

Capstone Hill can be circumnavigated to get different views of Ilfracombe and the Harbour. The walk includes a gentle gradient but be prepared for the strong winds at Windy Corner.

The view is worth the climb. A lovely tribute to a lost girl at the top as well. It was blowing a gale when we went, but still worth the trip up.

I have been to the very top before and I can say it's worth the effort to get up there with the views. Today however in rain that came at you horizontally I decided to look, walk up to and along the park before quickly...More

A very steep zigzag path to the top but once there amazing views all around for miles. Be careful with small children at the top as easy to get blown over the edge on a windy day!

Took a nice stroll up the hill on a lovely day. It provided some great views of the town and along the coast. Well worth the effort it took to get up. Might find it a bit tricky if steep walks aren’t your thing. Well...More

An easy hour up the hill and back down. Different paths that you can use, green grass well manicured on the slope leading to the town streets.
