Goring circular via Hill Bottom walk
Rolling Chilterns countryside, forest trails, quiet country lanes and 3 pubs
|Toughness||4/10 with 342m (1,111 feet) of ascent and descent|
|Maps||Explorer 171, Chiltern Hills West|
This circular walk is best done anti-clockwise and the walk instructions are written to reflect this . It is a mix of beautiful, rolling Chilterns countryside, forest trails and quiet country lanes. This is a spring to early autumn walk. The best time to do it however is probably late April or early May when the foliage of the beech trees is at its most vibrant and where there should be good displays of bluebells and other spring flowers in some woods. Sections of the trails through woods will be muddy after rain.
There are very short but safe stretches along potentially busy roads. There are three pubs en route before you reach Goring. At the end of the walk there is Pierreponts, a lovely, friendly tea stop by the River Thames in Goring. It closes at 5pm on Saturdays (not open on Sundays) so you need to pace the walk accordingly (or catch an earlier train!)
After the walk, we would love to get your feedback
