“Great Workout”
Reviewed 23 April 2012

I have climbed the Wrekin throughout my life, but hadn't been for about 8 years until this weekend.
It still remains a beautiful walk for all fitnesses. There are runners and cyclists for the superfit and people like myself, ambling along at my own pace.
Although it is secluded, you feel safe as you pass some one every 3 or 4 minutes. It's easyy to find your way up and down.
Great satisfaction when you reach the top and it's Free!!

“Great for walkers”
Reviewed 10 April 2012

I have been visiting the Wrekin regularly for a few years now and still keep discovering new paths up and round it.
It's a stiff climb but worth it for the views from the top.
if you go up the main path there is a little cafe part way up selling hot drinks and snacks, but I haven;t seen any opening times advertised.

“Good walk”
Reviewed 2 April 2012

Lovely views from the top of the hill you can see for miles. Take some water with you because the hill does take it out on you and it's good to stop to get your breath. Keep to the path as there is a lot of small loose stones and give yourself a good 3 hours to walk up, rest and walk back.
