Accessing the Wrekin From the South
The Wrekin can also be reached from the Raby estate by a longer walk from Little Wenlock or Ironbridge. The lanes on the south side are small and quiet and good to walk or cycle – the Shropshire Way approaches onthe south from Little Wenlock along Spout Lane.
The main path up from the Forest Glen is well surfaced and easy to follow. There are quieter public footpaths leading around the hill and a couple of permissive paths which join them. Only footpaths exist on the Wrekin and therefore cycling or horse riding can not take place although the lanes around provide a great space for these activities with part of the route designated as a quiet lane forming part of the Shropshire Way.
