26km walk from Woodhay Down.atreides788724/05/2020
2nd top of a 3 tump traverse from Kintbury station to Bedwyn station and a West Berkshire completion, climbing Pilot hill then re-tracing route to continue on trail, climbing over gate to walk Sw to top but waiting for family to do the widespread habit of standing on the trig pillar. I was content to reach the slight rise nearby. Beautiful views, remniscent of the Ridgeway. Continuation via the Test Way via Inkpen hill to Carvers Hill...Dazingdale22/03/2020

Easy walk from the car park, hopped fence and bagged the trig, then walked onto Pilot Hill. On the return leg dropped down to Lower Farm in Coombe, at the foot of the hill, and climbed the south side back up to the trig point. Amazing views !jarmin4504/01/2020

Along the Wayfarers to Combe Gibbet and up to the trig, hopped the gate.Eggletina26/09/2019
On the way home (sort of)after Butser Hill. The minor roads round here are a nightmare! Parked at the CP area to the East then along the track and a left turn to the trig and adjacent high point. The stile over the fence looks as though it has been broken/removed and is no longer there.Jephcote8314/09/2019
Lovely stopover en route to Southampton. Parked at the car park just to the east and wandered up just in time to catch a stunning sunset. Hopped over the gate to find the trig point easily. Beautiful views in all directions.jkl30/08/2019

Visited by party of 14 on Tim's birthday walk. Started from Crown & Garter pub at Inkpen Common. Circular route via West Woodhay House, Highwood Farm & Pilot Hill (Hants highest point) and Wayfarer's Walk. Views magnificent on both sides of ridge, but curiously we met no other walkers today. Triangulation obelisk easily accessible via stile from bridle path. Descent alongside ancient fort steeper but not unduly so. Sighting of Tree pipit near copse at end of descent.timbo9906/07/2019
