No longer so easily accesible. Avoid this hill.
by magicstep  2 Jun 2017
I've been there few times in the past and it was nice, but this summit is no longer so easily accessible as of 2017 because there's a "Private, No Trespassing"sign at C1901215390 starC, there's a new house at point C1877015384 starD. Asking for permission is difficult without trespassing. Perhaps try climbing from the point C181157 starB through the heather straight to the top.
