A recommended route via Hollingbourne village and the North Downs Way is highlighted on the map, it is easy to follow and offers good views, only a short section is steep. A shorter but less interesting route of 1¾ miles crosses fields where the route may harder to follow (aim for the farm buildings) and then up a steep unsurfaced track with no views. Beware that paths on the chalky soil may be slippery after wet weather.
