This is a quite extensive area of both grass land/ Heath and woodland. There are various paths to take through and around it. One major problem is that everyone from the local town takes their dogs here for walking and there is dog mess everywhere ! Very off-putting. Some lovely views over Lyme Bay and countryside. Easy to follow paths. If you keep to the top of the hill it is easy walking but also good to go around the edges of the site and climb some pretty steep hills. Plenty of free parking. Some sign boards with info on wildlife.

This local open nature reserve has become progressively busier over the last 20 years, due in part to the changes affecting dog ownership impacting on those living in urban areas. Too many people fail to control their 'faithful friends' when they get scent of Roe deer. Variety of wild life is good but not superb. You need to be walking quietly without loose dogs to enjoy the spectacle of native bird life and other mammals going about their business. Wellies or good walking boots needed most occasions unless following a period of very dry weather. Treading in dog poo a risk as many do not bag and remove the poo. management of the reserve is modest and not over intrusive. Parking areas are currently adequate with information points on hand.

Walk-wise, if you follow the whole route, Trinity Hill is a 2 to 2.5 kilometer ramble that actually constitutes an elongated, bent oval circuit that points more or less southeast. It's on the top of a hill, so you are hardly climbing up and down at all. After a short straight stretch of all-weather track through woodland from the car park there is an opportunity to continue either clockwise or anti-clockwise as the mood takes you. Either way don't go through the big gate at the far end of the oval - you will finish up in Uplyme. It takes a good three quarters of an hour and more to get round comfortably, and you pass through an interesting assortment of heath, coniferous and broadleaf woodland. In part it is 'robust wheel-chair' friendly, but it can get pretty muddy in parts. Wear suitable kit. There are no loos. Yes, it is a popular dog-walking circuit, and you do sometimes need to watch where you are treading. If you are a dog-owner, there is one important caveat, Going clockwise, more or less where the track does a first right hand bend (check the OS map) the contours come together, which means that there is a severe precipitous drop on your left, which is un-fenced. The only other flip-side, apart from the hazard of intermittent dog-poo, is that the small roadside car park can become busy at certain times. There is, however, another larger carpark a little way back towards the A35.

There is only one downside to the area and that is caused by the numerous dog walkers who have left excrement on footpaths and car parking areas - if you have children with you they need to be extremely careful! The walks through the woods and grass areas are lovely. We spotted a couple of deer at dusk and there were many birds singing around us. Wild flowers abound. There are information boards that help with knowing the area. It costs nothing to park and walk - a really lovely area of countryside.
