Coombe Hill

5 miles (8 km)

Climb to the 260m (850ft) summit of this lovely hill in the Chilterns. Coombe Hill is the highest viewpoint in the Chiltern Hills and commands wonderful views over Aylesbury Vale and the Cotswolds.
This circular walk starts in Wendover, near the train station, and follows the Ridgeway long distance trail to the summit. It's a nice, grassy footpath taking you over the delightful Bacombe Hill. There's a series of nice woodland paths and the area is also a nature reserve so look out for pretty wildflowers and over 20 species of butterfly. The summit is a special place with the iconic Coombe Hill Monument. It was erected in 1904 in memory of 148 men from Buckinghamshire who died during theSecond Boer War. As well as the great views over the Chilterns AONB you can also seeChequers, the country home of the Prime Minister from the summit.
From the summit you descend on more nice woodland paths to Dunsmore and then back into Wendover.
