Nevienam citam pilskalnam Latvija nav tada sanu stavuma un augstuma. Preteja pilskalna nogaze ir mazak stava, lai gan ari ta sasniedz 35 m augstumu. Kalna virsma kadreiz arta, tomer abos plakuma galos saskatamas izpluduša valna un gravja atliekas. Ari kulturslanis no plakuma vidus ir noarts uz kalna saniem un nogazem.

ENG - Drusku or Kornetu Hillfort is situated on the Northern Bank of the Pilskalns (the Hillfort) Lake. The surrounding of locality is featured by the great number of hills. South-eastern side of the hillfort is facing the Pilskalns Lake, this slope is unusually steep - it raises to the height of about 90 m above the level of the lake. There is no other hillfort in Latvia of the same steepness and height of the hillsides. The opposite hillside is less steep, yet it is also 35 m high. The surface of the hill has once been plought, but there still can be identified remains of a former ramparts and moats at the the both ends of the plateau. The cultural layer also has been removed to the hillsides as a result of agricultural activities. It is supposed that the entrance into the hillfort was situated in the North-eastern side, since there is a path leading to the top of the hill at this are even today. Fragments of stoneware, accidentally found in the hillfort gives a reason to suggest the Drusku or Kornetu Hillfort was inhabited at the beginning of the secon millenium AD.
