Circular cycle around 5 Tumps from Putley Riding School. From A438 to N, via Perton, Wootton, lane and tracks to usual ascent route. Cycled to within 100m of summit. Onward to Haugh Wood via forest tracks.Minto05/08/2018
Like others, from the carpark to the SE and easy walk up the bridleway. Visited the trig first and then on to the hill fort with interesting old quarried limestone outcrop on its east side.milimana16/06/2018
From the viewpoint car park at Cockshoot. Short stretch of path, briefly back onto the road and then a path left towards the hillfort. Took a diversion left on the way up to pass by the trig. Possibly some sort of ancient quarry next to the hillfort. Obvious hp.Herbert Anchovy10/05/2017

From car park, up FP and then Bridleway which goes all the wat to top with a tree on HP which is easy to find. No views from top.PeterD21/11/2015
Solo walk from Dormington. Great views of Sugarloaf and neighbouring hillforts of Aconbury and Dinedor from the slopes. Summit overgrown so no views, but the hillfort to the east is wonderful, a hidden gem.thesweetcheat12/04/2014
