Tristis Rock sits high on the western side of the River Erme on Burford Down. Its a fairly obvious rocky outcrop which stands out against the skyline. Its a reasonably easy spot to get to, and you have a number of options in order to get there. First is a path (marked on OS maps) in a south west direction from the road into Harford, on the Hall Farm side of Harford Bridge, starting at a gate. You can also drop down from the Stalldown Barrow side, or finally the tricky option of crossing the Erme. This last option will probably involve a wade through the river, a climb over a fence and a thrash through steep undergrowth!! The views are good for such a small tor, especially along the Erme valley and across towards Butterdon Hill. There are no military firing areas near here.
