Ascend to the top of the hill from the North. At the top of Trencrom Hill take in the views stretching across North Cornwall to Godrevy and to Rosewall Hill to the west. Keep an eye out for holes in the summit's boulders drilled in by miners, during the Victorian times, on Midsummer's day and packed with gunpowder and lit for fuses of merriment!


Follow the track down and round back to the car park keeping an eye out for mining history such as shafts.
