This hill is surrounded by 140 massive wind turbines. There are many trails to follow, and therefore many ways to get to the top of this hill.

The paths are suitable for walking and cycling and even horse riding (if you remembered to bring along your horse) :shock:. The paths are easy going and not too steep.

The top has a trig marker and some nice views when the weather is clear.

It was a bit of a mess up there when they were building the turbines a couple of years back - from your picture it looks like it has been more or less cleared up? There seemed a serious risk of the trig being destroyed at one stage, glad to see it's still there.
