New to hill-bagging (after looking for a way to record my mountain progress - seems like a good way to get some practice in). Nipped out in my lunch break to walk Kent's top. Beautiful sunny day, lovely drive over and walk through the woodland. Got the trig point first from the car park then walked up the lane to the footpath on the right and beat my way onto the edge of the field. A bit unclear but agree the tree seems to be the HP.MysteriousSue16/05/2019
Went to grid reference but also trig point at viewing point above car park. Surely thatís the top! Lovely long tailed tits up there liked itnickywood116/11/2018
Up lane from car park in Holly Hill. HP is near a tree in a pasture to the right.clivevilla27/04/2018
Drove to the north end of Holly Hill Rd by following a police pick up truck. Asked if we could park next to no parking sign and permission was readily granted. Had along chat with delightful police officer about hill bagging and strange practices in the country lanes of Medway. Copper with a good sense of humour.Campbell Singer19/04/2018
Parked at road end, along FP and then followed a beaten down route into the field. HP Near tree.PeterD25/11/2016
From car park at end of minor road, easy access along north downs way then bash through undergrowth to field. Would be easier at about any other time of year.rhalstead06/08/2016
From Holly Hill Rd, after the trig pillar. RoW initially then through large rear garden of Holly Hill House, out into a hay meadow. Long wet grass and raining.jonglew01/07/2016

Parked within 200m of the 'summit' and walked easily up the path in the gathering gloom to GZ by a large tree.signyred28/10/2015
With trig.ngthack08/10/2015
Night visit wandering around field next to the North Downs Way. By an unlikely coincidence there were some outdoor groups out also with headtorches practicing night navigation (pacing etc) in the same field. In true British style we dealt with this unlikely encounter in the dark with a cheery 'good evening'as we passedChris Pearson25/03/2015
Car park at TQ669629. Easiest access is from footpath to the South and through gate at TQ671632.webmaster28/02/2015

In rough scrub wood. Also OS column at 668627. 13.45.arranc18/11/2014
A short walk from the car park at 669629. After bashing through the brambles I presume it is the large tree or thereabouts.bolton13/11/2014
From the car park walked up lane to bridal way agree tree in field seems high ground .Haygalzer05/10/2014
Completed the Holly Hill geocaching trail.Alancache06/05/2014
A quick drive out with my eldest daughter. We took the foot path leading from the road into the field and made for the large tree in the middle.mcallmar19/04/2014

Drove past the Holly Hill car park, to the end of the unmade track. Plenty of warnings to keep to the bridle way when wandering around.Newton Maximus26/07/2013

I reckon it's the tree. Best route is from the south west across the field.simon and co30/04/2012
Walked up here whilst walking the local area. All very quiet, not many people around.dave-harris15/08/2010
This and the nearby trig from the car park, not bad views and a nice walk.asbown08/10/2009
Bit of a muddy track to follow from car park but top easily found, by the single tree in field seems right.Nick29/03/2009
Parked at Holly Car Park and took a stroll back up the road. The Byway was extremely muddy and has bollards in place to restrict motor vehicles. Top itself easily found and not to unpleasant considering the state of the byway.garyhoney17/12/2008
Parked about a mile away in a lane because of stupid height barriers.Overthehilljill30/11/2008
You can do a decent circular walk from Sole Street station - top isn't much to shout about though.Richard13/09/2008
Very quickly achieved top, so we took a further walk around the area, dropping down onto the Pilgrim's Way and returning through Whitehorse Wood.kaapiovuohi23/08/2008

Uninspiring part-way-up-the-hill on side of path is made up for by very pleasant walking in surrounding woodland.wheresthepath22/10/2004
