Take Center Hill Rd to Mountain road then bear left onto Tarlton Rd. I parked at the Epsom Town Forest boundary on Tarlton Road and followed the disintegrating road almost the entire walk. After approximately 1 mile the road bears left and begins it's 0.3 mi incline to the col between Neville and Nottingham mountains. The road continues left to the Neville Peak summit. I began a 0.3 mile easy bushwhack through blueberry scrub and open woods to the high point of Nottingham Mountain and stood on the tallest rock.
As for wildlife I saw the flash of a white tail and a diversity of poop flavors along the ridge. On Descent I returned to the col and followed the 4x4 road to Neville Peak then returned to the car.
NOTES / COMMENTS:
The summit of both Neville Peak and Nottingham Mountain have minimal trees and mostly open scrub and blueberry bushes however the surrounding trees are overgrown providing limited views.
