This family walk starts off in Hambleden village. You can park in the village itself or the car park next to the Stag and Huntsman. Note: this is now a pay and display car park.
The route begins travelling up a footpath following a long steep ish hill. Once you are up its down hill for the rest of the way and the views are worth it.
One thing to mention is the section on the map marked ‘private’. We accidently missed the footpath taking us across the field and stumbled onto the private land. A kind man directed us back to the footpath but he mentioned there is a game keeper who is not keen on people on his land.
