Good walk for a clear sunny day with excellent views across west Berks and south Oxfordshire. Paths were mostly clear, just a little rutted in places and had quite a few cyclists. No gates, styles etc.

Pleasant and very easy walk, perfect for a couple hours stroll. Easy route to follow using the app. I recorded the walk to be 5 miles however, not 6.
