description Description EN

Brown Willy ridge is the highest point in Cornwall, it`s trigpoint is 420 metres above sea level.
There are many ways to approach the hill, but the suggested route is from Jamaica Inn (Bolventor) just off the A30.
Park in a lay-by on a small lane at N50`33.810 W004`34.043. Climb the stile a few metres to the west & follow the path down to the farm, then up the gated lane leading up onto Tolborough Tor. Continue to a gate at N50`34.471 W004`35.037, then follow the fence line north west. After 1.8Km you reach a gate at N50`35.342 W004`35.541, then head west up onto the ridge.

Other possibilities are to go via Roughtor, parking at N50`36.420 W004`37.965 (drive from Davidstow).
Or park at Emblance Downs, east of St. Breward - N50`33.650 W004`38.438, then walk via Garrow Tor & Butter`s Tor. Or park at Bowithick Ford - N50`36.916 W004`34.142, then walk south west via Buttern Hill. Please consult Ordnance Survey map "Explorer 109" & go prepared for a long walk over exposed moorland.

You are looking for a 1 litre plastic box. There is no clue, but I have posted a spoiler photo. Enjoy your walk.
