Great family thing to do and get away from consoles, tablets and tv. It takes about an hour to leisurely amble up and down the beacon from the free car park. It's exposed so often windy and it's surprising how fast the weather can change....More

I do this walk a couple of times a year. A decent effort from Tring station rewards you with superb panoramic views. Add on a loop back through the Ashridge estate for a to day.

There's more than one way to the top of the beacon ranging from "gentle" to "rather more steep!" so choose the path most suited to your needs and then enjoy the views across the open countryside.

Climb this beacon & see for miles. The terrain is easy walking being chalky grassland, ideal for wetter conditions if you have a dog. Dogs need to be kept on leads in the pastures as sheep are grazing, but mine loved the wind in his...More
