Very popular route to top of The Wrekin. So popular with all that you will meet walkers with pushchairs, 4 year old children struggling up, runners up and down, and occasionally bikes This is not difficult technically but is unremitting in its steepness and very tiring, hence the Physical Rating of Hard. Choice of line is key to a non-stop ascent. This is also the easiest way down!

       Toby.. Go down the trials on both sides this is the main track up and down. The main track down is still amazing this guy is talking shite.
      Slow down for walkers and look out for dogs off leads.

       Horrendous climb, I never made it to the top without pushing until I bought my E-Bike! A few good trails to come back down though to choose from. Don't bother riding down this, too busy with walkers and no where near as fun as the other descents!

       A solid climb rewards you with great views and many varied fun routes from the top.
