To The Top
Summit Hint: Take a family photo at the trig point
Take Care!For some summits, the precise location cannot be reached. You can still bag the summit by getting as close as safe and legally possible. Always remember to take into account weather conditions and the abilities of your family.
This is the summit of The Wrekin, which is part of the Telford and Wrekin 3 Peaks Hiking Challenge.
The Wrekin has a small car park at the bottom. If that's full, there are some parking places along the road.
The walk up to the summit is straightforward: just follow the track that winds up the hill.
Partway up is a cafe, but note that this isn't open during the winter months.
The top of the Wrekin used to be an iron age hill fort. As you approach the first outer rings of the fort, there's a notice board on the right-hand side of the track that provides you with a little more information.
