Lovely walk - stunning views and some lovely remote tracks / valleys. A couple of slightly hairy road sections, we jogged those to avoid being on them too long!

Really enjoyed this hike, it's more road walking than I am usually happy with but the twists and turns through the countryside were worth it. Would probably rate this as more of a moderate hike despite the distance as the terrain is easily trodden and the ascension is very minimal. Overall a great Sunday morning walk in a pretty part of Buckinghamshire. Allow 3-4 hours depending on your pace.

This is a variation on the 10.4 Princes Risborough walk that I posted last year. The difference in the trail is that it avoids the two steepest climbs (and the cattle/bull often found in one of the fields). The remaining climb is strenuous but much easier than the alternative. The route begins and ends in the Stratton Rd car park, next to the church in princes Risborough, Buckinghamshire. The car park is now a Pay and Display and charges £2 for 8 hours.I have not yet seen the car park full and I have been there on about 20 occasions from spring through to late autumn. The walk is about 3.5 hours duration, though a beer and or meal at the Two Lions 3 miles from the end of the walk might extend that time period. Part of the trail follows the Ridgeway. It runs: Princes Risborough, Bledlow Ridge, Radnage, Chinnor Hill, Bledlow, Horsendon, Princes Risborough.
