Highly recommend taking the John Muir trail to get to both Croy Hill & Bar Hill, the later contains remnants of an old fortress and bathhouse. It's a 10-15 minute walk from Croy Railway station heading northeast. When you get to Nethercroy Road (BBQ & Hand Car Wash) there is a juncture, to the right is Croy Hill, to the left is Bar Hill. To access Bar Hill you will have to walk down a farm road until you reach another crossroads where the sign for Bar Hill is located. To the left is a gentler & more gradual climb to the top, to the right (John Muir Way) is a steeper and uneven journey. The surface for both treks is not paved and it's advised to choose a dry, warm day to hike or wear appropriate footwear and clothing.
