Great way of waking up at the weekend just have a stroll up the Wrekin, usually busy at mid mornings so get there early in time for a parking spot.

I've been walking the wrekin for many years and its become popular in recent times, in fact too popular, because its not as quiet as it once was, this is showed by the amount of cars which now fill up the car parks, However its still worth a visit as its the only large hill for miles around.

Great walk up the Wrekin. Been here many times before. It's ideal for any age, families etc. Decent weather will help as its all open.

Plenty of good walks of varying difficulty. Paths are well marked and there are wonderful views if you make it to the summit of the Wrekin.

Did not know what to expect but the walk to the top was amazing. The views were lovely you can see for miles on a clear day.

The Wrekin is a great place for a walk if your visiting any of Telford and Ironbridge's many attractions, better in the spring or autumn rather than the hotter summer months because the climb can be a bit gruelling for the less energetic rambler but worth the effort, magnificent views and a great sense of achievement.

Quite a gentle stroll from Wellington. Takes about 2hours to reach the summit. Good paths along the way, rewarded by nice views.

A good walk, and a great view from the top, weather permitting. only 407 mtrs high (1335ft ) you can choose to walk up and down it, or around the base of it. I have Cycled over it, not for the faint hearted.
