Description
Waypoints (9)

A beautiful route around the Chilterns avoiding (at all costs) any cow fields or horses! Takes you through the town of Frieth and Skirmett, where The Frog is a perfect stop off for a refreshment. Some sections of tarmac to avoid the animals, but the traffic is very quiet. Some of the lanes provide views across the valley. The route includes two decent hills to get you going, but they are well worth the climb.

Went a bit of route. Very muddy in places at the moment but nice trail. A lot of walking on road. There are free as well as Park and Display parking spaces around the starting point. £5 for all day if you need to pay to park.

HikingGreat!Muddy

free parking behind the Stag and Huntsman pub. some country roads for a few kilometres as we walked the other way round to the route. the view of Fingest from Mousells Woods was pretty amazing. we went off the trail at Fingest and went back to Hambleden via Old Luxters Winery which is a good climb to the top of Great Wood.

This was a a fantastic walk! However, stop following the instructions once you get to the pub turn right out of the pub, go straight to the end of the road and there's a pathway straight ahead that basically takes you all the way back home! it has lovely views, is super flat and 40 mins to get back to the pub in Hambledon!

Nice walk with pretty villages. Good pubs and good views. Quite a lot of tarmac but the roads are very quiet and there are walks in adjacent fields. No livestock at all so dog friendly. We saw a few deer and stags.

First to Review

One of my favourite walks! Gets 5 star from me too as there is no livestock on route! Great veiws of the rolling chiltern hills, lovely woodlands full on bluebells in the spring and beautiful cottages through all the picturesque villages. Nice pub stop at the frog in skirmett. Also very easy free parking at the stag and huntsman in hambleden. Will definitely be doing this walk again and again!
