The short hop from nearby West Woodhay CP, over the gate and a few bemused sheep moved away from the trig point: a very hot day and this top was followed by a circuit over to Ham and back, with excellent views afforded throughout.JOHNS26/06/2020
We parked in Combe Gibbet car park and did short walk up path to the farmers gate which we crossed before arriving at the Trig point.Sapphirites25/06/2020

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

Ran from Coombe Gibbet car park, turned off right to trig point.gazgib25/01/2020
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
Beautiful sunny and windy day. Great views. Came off footpath to trig point, then carried on to Pilot Hill.Eliza10004/05/2019

Pilot Hill and Walbury Hill, gaining access by bike. Route up to Pilot Hill from SU 40823 59713 was fine on bike but down to road at SU 38333 61430 was very muddy and had to push the bike. Route up and down to Walbury Hill was fine but you do have to climb over fence to get to summit (not a public footpath).tsharp21/11/2017

5/8M quick grab from the cp.robertphillips06/11/2017
After driving all the way down to Win Green and Long Knoll, I was not going to miss this one out whilst in the area, so I bagged it in the dark. Great fun hunting for the trig in the lush meadow grass, but not as hard as finding the way around the minor roads in the dark. Good view of a firework display in Newbury on the way back.Gill14/10/2017
Trig point is on private land with no right of way but there is a stile by a gate from the waymarked path which suggests they don't mind you visiting.ijpowell07/09/2017
Started at Combe Gibbet, dropped down into Combe then around the bottom of Walbury Hill before re-joining the Wayfarers and jumping over the obscured stile and into the field to find the (also obscured) trig point. It's almost like they don't want you to find it!Jeremy C02/09/2017
