Starting from Watlington, this circular walk takes in some fine beech woodland in the Chilterns before descending back to Watlington via Watlington hill. You can be assured to spot dozens of Red kites along the way.

This is a good day's walking and will start from the car park at Watlington hill road. After the initial climb of the Chilterns escarpment, it then leads into possibly the most remote, tranquil and unspoilt area of the Chilterns, with secluded valleys and isolated hamlets and villages.

We then take a popular path back to Watlington Hill which boasts far-reaching views of the Chilterns escarpment and the Oxford Vale. To the south, you'll see beech and ash woodland that cloaks the slopes of the nearby hills.
