Since I generally dislike crossing farmland, so I was determined to find a route via the forest to the south of the summit, let's just say I failed, eventually I parked the car by a gateway on the road and crossed the farmland to the top and back.
I've left in the failed attempts to gain the summit via the forest so you know the ways not to go.

Note: ALL information such as Ascent, Length and Creator time taken etc should be regarded as approximate. The creator's comments are opinions and may not be accurate or still correct.
Your time to complete will depend on your speed plus break time and your mode of transport. For walkers: Naismith's rule, a rough and often inaccurate estimate, suggests a time of 1h 5m + time stopped for breaks
Note: It is up to you to ensure that your route is appropriate for you and your party to follow bearing in mind all factors such as safety, weather conditions, experience and access permission.
