On own. From the NT pay and display car park on Woolstone Hill. Up via The Ridgeway and over to trig point.

1st of 2 tumps today,detouring off Stage 3 of the Ridgeway with Lesley on our walk from Hinton Parva to East Challow. Our airbnb host dropped us off where we veered off the Ridgeway the day before. Wonderful blue skies! I visited the vague natural summit on the return before continuing on the Ridgeway to Sparsholt Down.Dazingdale24/09/2018
A nice family afternoon stroll in the sunshine to view the White Horse. Continued on to the trig point, before walking around the earth banks of Uffington castle. Wonderful views over the surrounding countryside.Gerry the Ranger01/08/2018
Interesting place. Stopped off as a convenient lunch break off the M4. Very hot, with stunning views northwards! Quite busy, but I can't say I blame everyone for wanting to go there... Paid £2 to park in the designated car park, but I'm sure you could find somewhere free in a nearby village if you tried.jkl22/07/2018

Stop off from cycle along the Ridgeway. Excellent grassy hill fort with fine views and trig point. Highest point is on inner ring mound SSW of trig point at SU 30071,86335. If you want a more natural high point try the rough grassy area E of the trig pillar, perhaps SU 30140,86361RichardM30/03/2017
