For an afternoon's hike Skirrid is reasonably challenging especially in the winter. The path takes you up through mixed woodland and up a track with steep steps which can be very slippery coming down. Once past this clambering bit you are onto the slope up to the trig point. Breathtaking views on both sides...across to Gloucestershire to the East and to the West you are next to the Sugarloaf. I love this place.
