The summit is part of the Looe Golf Club. Operation from the trig will require the appropriate consent from the management and may be best obtained for a time that is out of normal playing hours.

Report 1
 SX276575 - Club car park.
 Best determined at time of visit once consent is obtained.

Report 2
 SX277583 - Wide grassy verge near to crossroads to N of the summit - note that the ground can be rather boggy. The golf club have a parking area to the east of the crossroads. The ground adjacent to the access track to this was firmer.
 From the crossroads ascend the hill up the lane which is very busy - take care. Operation is possible from a gateway on the west side of the road close to the highest point (spot height 187m), but the raised verges which are covered with gorse and other vegetation inhibit operation using an HF dipole.
