This walk takes you from Baggeridge car park up to the Toposcope, which affords views of the surrounding countryside, and then returns you via a different route to the car park. On a clear day, it is said that the Welsh Mountains can be seen from this point. The Toposcope is a flat disc with radii that will show you what is visible in a given direction, through 360°. It is useful to bring a pair of binoculars. Baggeridge Park has been awarded the Green Flag Award for thirteen consecutive years, and has a picnic area available. There is a tea shop, a children's play area, a miniature railway, a sensory garden and disabled toilets. Other nearby attractions include Penn Common and Himley Hall & Park. The walk is along a flat route at the beginning. However, there are a couple of quite steep flights of steps to and from the Toposcope. On the way back, there is a nature board detailing the local topography known as The Pit Mounds.
