The view at the summit is tremendous, and is accessible via car by making use of the road beginning in Clee Hill (Village). Please note that the ‘carpark’ area at the top is riddled with extremely large, water filled potholes, so proceed with caution. There are plenty of trail walks some starting from the ‘carpark’ area at the top.

The Clee Hills are a distinct area of uplands separated from those further west. There are some significant areas of common land including Clee Liberty, Clee Hill and Catherton Commons. The hills are surrounded by a high plateau of sandstone with red soils and mostly enclosed pastoral land.

Villages are often small and scattered, and there are some medieval deserted settlements. Clee Hill is the largest village, and bears a strong influence of past and present mining and quarrying. The high point of the A4117 on Clee Hill Common provides remarkable views south to the Malvern Hills, Herefordshire and beyond. The old squatter settlements associated with former mining result in a surviving pattern of small land holdings, including non-agricultural uses. Small hay meadows and high quality grasslands survive in amongst these.

In the west the area extends to the perimeter of Ludlow and along the edge of the Corve Dale, where larger traditional country estates are found. The market towns of Ludlow and Cleobury Mortimer are both 5.5 miles distant. Ludlow to the west and Cleobury to the east. There are substantial woodlands on the eastern flanks of Brown Clee near Burwarton.
