The Stiperstones Ridge is the second highest point in Shropshire. This figure-of-eight walk takes you along the ridge, visiting its famous rock formations before descending one of the many 'dingles' or valleys that cut into its flanks, passing through the village of Stiperstones (with its handily placed pub), before an ascent of another two dingles returns you to the summit near an Iron Age hill-fort, which you can visit before returning to the start.

Did this walk on 12.01.2019. A very beautiful walk with outstanding panoramic views, instructions easy to follow, thoroughly enjoyed.Encountered no livestock throughout. The Stiperstones Inn is well worth a visit, very friendly staff & locals alike, lovely real fire, good selection of beers & food excellent value & very tasty. However if you are like me & have 3 pints and a sandwich you do have a large uphill section to follow, but well worth the effort for the views that reward you. A most enjoyable day - thank you Richard Hardy i look forward to visiting this area again.

Thanks for a great walk. Being more of an 'easy' walker rather than a 'moderate' one, I looked at the contour lines with some trepidation. But in the end, with lots of pauses for breath and (in any case) to take in the views - it was all worth while. Once back 'on top' the walk is very easy.

On lead walking required in nesting season and some livestock will be encountered. A small amount of road walking, but no awkward stiles.
