Geocache Description:

An excellent stand of huge trees, that I climb a lot - with a free parking area just metres away. I believe this to be wheelchair accessible as there is a hard track and the distance is very short, but I would be grateful for any user feedback on this.

From the M5, and indeed from everywhere within a huge radius, Ashclyst Forest can be seen on top of its hill, and Sprydon Beacon is the topmost part of that hill. From a distance the huge trees can be seen extending much higher than the canopy of the rest of the forest.

Who wouldn't want to climb them?!

To claim this cache, submit a picture of you at the Sprydon Beacon name sign in the car park, and ideally submit a picture of you at the top of one of the trees though this is by no means a requirement! The main trees are all in excess of 25m and they each pose their own particular challenges - especially the redwoods, with their downward-sloping limbs. From the top, of course, you can see so far that if you look through powerful enough binoculars you can see the back of your own head.
