Trail description

The view from High Vinnalls, Mortimer ForestThis trail ascends to the summit of the High Vinnalls giving panoramic views in all directions and then passes through a variety of timber crops and open deer lawns.

This is a moderate to hard walk with some steep climbs, good footwear is essential, especially in wet weather.

Good fun, very wet and muddy, stunning views, will defiantly come back and walk again.

This is our fourth time round Vinnalls Loop. First time was easier without the storm felled trees across back end of track! Also being now past 70 doesn't help...

Also, the main approach road to car park being closed was a bit of a bummer, came back way.

Also (!!) lost my swiss army knife somewhere around the summit (what a **!! day). Nicola has my no if any nice person happens to find it.

Apart from that Mortimer forest never loses its charm etc.

Happy days.
