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, there is a path (marked on OS maps) in a south west direction from the road into Harford, beside Harford Bridge, you can also drop down from Stalldown Barrow, 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.
