Coopers Hill

2 miles (3 km)

This circular walk takes you around Coopers Hill, site of the famous annual cheese rolling event.
The area includes a number of woodland trails, lots of wildlife and nice views over the Gloucestershire countryside from the high points.
You can start the walk from the car park, just of Green Street. Then head south to climb to the hill summit which stands at about 240 metres. You can then follow other trails towards High Brotheridge and Buckholt Woods before returning to the car park.

Looking down Cooper's Hill. Every May Bank Holiday the annual cheese rolling takes place down this extremely steep hillside. The picture does not really do justice to the steepness of the gradient. A large round cheese is rolled down the steep slope of the hill and chased by a group of tumbling "runners".
