There is no public access to the main part of the hillfort, but the Forestry Commission owns land to the immediate east and north of the fort area, up to and including parts of the ramparts on the northern edge. There is open access available off Eddisbury Hill Lane, although the top of the fort is fenced and inaccessible.
There are 3 main definitive routes nearby, and a busy visitor centre at Linmere (FC) to the north of the fort. Paths are generally in good condition: wide tracks with sand and earth surfacing and fairly level gradients. There are a number of permissive routes linking off the Sandstone Trail into the woodland itself and up to Old Pale Heights, a view point in the area.
All of the definitive routes link to the Sandstone Trail, which continues through the forest on a wide open track with undulating gradients and a fairly even surface. There are a number of information points along the route, also a Sandstone Trail information panel situated in Gresty’s Waste car park, the main feeder car park for the area. There is also parking at the visitor centre, but none in the immediate area of the fort. Signage is limited in the vicinity of the fort, but the Trail is well signed to the west of the fort.
There is scope to improve access and awareness of the fort in the general area: good views of the fort can be seen from the visitor centre, where there is little if no information readily available. Interpretation could also be situated on site, at the base of the hillfort. Permissive access to the hillfort’s summit would also be desirable.
