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.
That's all folks!
