Was worth it for the views despite missing the Beacon due to fog, the other hills were great.

A great walk any time of year! Spring/summer brings lots of green views and flowers and sheep but there’s something special about the Cotswolds in winter where the uphill part of this makes you feel like you deserve your pint at the pub in front of the roaring fire that much more. The tower is interesting with some lovely views around.

A great walk in terms of being the best proper hills close to the Birmingham. Lovely countryside. But it’s not that circular, more of an electorate back and forth. But a lovely walk nonetheless. Would recommend if you like a reasonably challenging walk, also lots of cute dogs around.

My partner and I went on a glorious day, perfect conditions for walking. it was sunny and a warm 20C. This meant that the paths were firm, which made it easy to walk on. On the last quarter of this trail the paths are narrow and not easy to find without the app/map. I should imagine the paths would become difficult to walk on if wet due to them not being surfaced. I highly recommend this walk to anyone that wants to experience a peaceful walk, away from traffic and the hustle and bustle.

A great walk for anyone who likes a varied trek out. Starting in the bottom corner of the car Park it’s a gentle bimble on a well marked path, this does get a bit steep and uneven so watch you footing on the way down. Once you hit the quarry though it’s all up hill from here but definately worth it when you finally pop out of the tree line and you are handed some stunning views across Herefordshire And Worcestershire! You could do this walk in trainers on a good day but not advised as it can be a bit tricky under foot at times. Enjoy!

Beautiful walk around the lake. Plenty of wildlife on show. Easy walk for all the enjoy.

Nice route but supper hot in summer sun. Easy to leave route when on top of hill due to many paths however the soon join back up.

Great walk, well interpreted mill, lots of alternative tracks

Extremely steep in places, nice views. Not well signed. Plenty of litter bins. Nice cafe at the well.

Excellent trail lots of climbs and decents.The climbs are short with some steeper areas. Paths across the ridge are easy to follow. The return loop on lowlands are a bit more tricky to navigate. some great views from the top of British Camp,Worcester Beacon and Midsummers Hill.

Lovely trial, and plenty of off shoots to make it slightly shorter or longer. Some charming things to look at on the way round. Saw plenty of wildlife and great for dogs ( on a lead if they can’t be trusted with the animals).

There is plenty of parking at the start of this walk. The first climb is quite steep but the view from the top of Midsummer hill is worth it, especially looking over towards the Oblesik and Eastnor castle. The descent from here to the quary is quite steep and very slippery. From the quary to the Obelisk was quite wet so you need sensible shoes. If you wanted a simple and gentle there and back walk to the Obelisk then take the surfaced road on the left at the car park as you look at the hill. Lots of local dog walkers appear to do this. Whilst not the longest of walks the fist half is quite challenging do allow little longer than normal for this length of walk.

A pleasant walk. Not to strenuous and 3mph was easily achieved. I only gave it 3 stars as a diversion was necessary at the westernmost point. This was due to a very clear signpost stating "No unauthorised access..."

Nice walk we managed to accomplish it with 5 and 7 year old kids. Last part once you heading your car from the nice pond is killing. Defo worth to go there.

it was a lovely day. me and the girlfriend both took it easy walking up. amazing scenes. take a partner to see their reaction to the false summits

Relatively easy walk for someone who is decently fit. Good paths and enough incline/decline to work the legs. Route is popular with mountain bikers but not much of an inconvenience really.

An excellent (but steep in places) walk for all ages. Watch out for the top as when we went it was so windy

Great walk, great exposure to sun and can see far for most of the walk. The uphill trail in the middle was good for working out, and a jog down increased the heart rate. Tired by the end, but plenty of places to visit on the way back. Would go back & recommend going back with friends and family. Would go for a speedy trek if I wanted to work out... very nice to go, we came from Birmingham and appears to be local. We wore, meindl men’s Cambridge GTX walking shoe, and salomon 3D 4 gtx womens. 32 degrees clear skies sunny all day

Beautiful walking in Malvern

A beautiful walk on a gorgeous day. This walk was the first we have chosen to do through the app. It was very easy to follow the map given and the instructions were straight forward. The main recommendation I would make is to make sure you get there early if it’s a nice day. We did this today (bank holiday Monday) and arrived about 10:00am. Spoke to one of the rangers who told us that the car parks were full by 11:00. If, like us, your not an experienced walker, then this is an ideal trail to use.

Great trek, to get the heart pumping take the dirt path from car park to the summit of Midsummer Hill. Views from all sides. Stop and enjoy the flowers in bloom and the wildlife.

Really enjoyed this walk. The app allowed me to go completely off piste and still get back to the car with no stress. Perfect

Loved using this app for the first time. I went the wrong way 3 times but the interactive map had me back on the correct route in no time. Very impressed
