Short walk from the car park. Mind the Gruffalo.AllanAndAbby15/03/2020
12k Circular walk taking in Haddington Hill and Pavis Wood. Nice easy walk, a lot of woodland and the occasional view of the rolling Chilterns Hills. Neither of the HPs are particularly of note.jarmin4518/01/2020

With Val. From car park in Wendover Woods. Short walk to flat summit with plaque marking highest point. To make a bit more of a walk of it we went on to the Pavis Wood county top. Good weather.mike.hoult02/10/2019

Part of circular walk including Herts high point in Pavis Wood SW of Tring. From Herts 'peak', walked to opposite SW corner of Pavis Wood, exited west to an open area called The Crong. Turned south along road, then right path to Wendover Woods. Bucks high point is marked by a cairn stone (highest point of Chilterns) on eastern boundary of wood. No discernible 'peak' here but at least it is marked.timbo9910/07/2019

Nice 25km circular from Wendover.atreides788714/04/2019
Walked from Costa Café in Wendover. Top very flat, but has Cairn with plaque to prove which is the exact spot. Lazy people could drive to within 50m of the summit.IanHHill27/03/2019
Loop from Wendover station. A revisit for the sake of the Cambridge hillwalking club's 'climb all the county tops in a year' project.Mark Jackson24/03/2019
On own. From new Forestry Commission car park in Wendover Woods along new exit road then into woods to boulder and plaque which is close to forest edge. Had planned to continue walk to Pavis Wood but lack of time meant ended up driving.Beeliner22/03/2019

Decided to do this one after a skiing lesson in Milton Keynes. Upon exiting the car we were greeted by the sound of screaming kids! The cafe was shocking so opted for a quick visit to bag the summit then headed off to find a nice farm shop cafe just down the road.Jephcote8305/01/2019
The road through Wendover woods is a N-S one-way toll road with the entrance at SP 891101 and the exit at SP 898083. One can avoid the toll by parking for free near the exit gate at SP 897083 and walking, on the toll road, in a northerly direction to the summitIsbjorn10/11/2018

A very easy walk from Wendover woods car park. We made the trip more worthwhile by walking to nearby Aston hill and back.suzannerowcliffe02/11/2018
A hill walk in reverse - start at/ near summit then descend (via Coombe Hill trig to near golf club in this case). Woods quite pleasant. Hill bagged & car journey back 'up North' - similar to Gill's experience trying to get to M1 via Milton Keynes (following not brilliant signage) was purgatorial - possibly best to ignore motorway signs and use the A5 till north of town.ger31/10/2018

5th hill of 6 on Stage 7 of the Ridgeway walk with Lesley, having detoured off to climb Whiteleaf Hill, Pulpit Hill, Beacon Hill and Coombe Hill, this would be the longest detour of the trip, from the minor lane junction with Hengrove wood i took the lane then a footpath that traverses a large field leading to a permissive path through the woods then abandoning this for some fruiteless wandering. One of the vaguest Marilyns I would imagine. Boulder with plaque bagged but road through the woods seems higher but then is this natural? Back along the forest tracks and back to Lesley who had been patiently waiting for me...Dazingdale27/09/2018
From new car park along new exit road then into woods to boulder and plaque. £2.20 I think is minimum charge.mart079714/08/2018
