We got up on the Stipperstones despite the snow. We drove up to the car park just down from the ridge so that my unenthusiastic siblings could access the ridge and get the views. Interesting rocky outcrops and a trig point and a winter wonderland...More

You feel like you are in the middle of nowhere, but it isn't far to Shrewsbury or Telford if you need a bigger metropolis. The scenery is excellent, the paths well marked and various car parks and routes available for how long a walk and/or...More

A steepish but wide walk up to the Stiperstones gives you a stunning view. We walked late afternoon and witnessed one of the most sensational sunsets I have ever seen. Well worth the drive to get there and the walk. Stunning scenery.

One of the most beautiful areas of the country. There are many places where one can explore the Shropshire hills, but personally would recommend the many places within the Stiperstones National Nature Reserve above most. T there are a few quieter visitors centres here, plenty...More

Always wanted to visit Stiperstones since learing about the geology at school. It's taken 50 years but it was well worth it! Went on a February Sunday. This is quite a short walk but you definitely need walking boots. The start is mainly grass but...More

Started at the Bog visitor centre, up to the ridge, along the top last Manstone & Devils chair, then down to the right and back along valley. Very wet & muddy. Took about 2.5 hours at moderate pace walking.

Drive from the west via Shelf towards the stones for a wonderful view of them on the ridge. Large parking area nearby and short walk to the stones. Worth a trip to The Bog and Snailbeach Leadmine while in the area.
