A nice loop walk of Collon Hill taking in the rocky summit which has a small cairn and trip pillar. For whatever reason the start of the GPS track in marked incorrectly but parking for one or two cars is location at the forest entrance. The summit views are wonderful and we had red kites flying over head as we enjoyed the views. Sadly there is logging currently ongoing with it's usual clear felling and general destruction. In spite of the logging, there are some relatively young oak trees and other older sections of deciduous trees which are lovely to walk among. It's a nice walk and worth the outing.
