The first of a few today and a harder slog up from South Zeal public car park than I'd bargained for on a very hot day. Went anti-clockwise along the bridleways which became much less distinct once heading south. Straightforward enough to get to though at this time of year when dry underfoot. Down via the impressive Stone Row E of the summit and back to the car in a couple of hours.

Up from the car park in South Zeal for a last bag on the trigpointers weekend. Must admit I don't see much of this hill as it was shrouded in mist. Geocached on the way up and down which took the monotony out of it.

Have visited this trig point previously at the start of eventually completing the Dartmoor Perambulation with friends, as well as other occasions whilst letterboxing, but today - Christmas Day 2015 - the weather forecast was good enough to tackle the excellent geocaching trail that goes round and around and around Cawsand/Cosdon Hill with geocaching friends. Long distance views were superb unless one looked at the dark sky above as obviously raining elsewhere - but as soon as the last cache was found and we headed to the trig point = hail and then rain accompanied us with avengence all the way back down to our cars! Ah well, that is Cosdon at any time of the year to be honest! Have marked interest/scenery 10/10 for a good day, but not necessarily today.....!
