This is a list of walks I have done starting at West Wycombe in the Chiltern Hills. There is a very large free car park in the village - it's now named the Hell Fire Caves car park, I think it used to be called the 'village' car park.

The distances are usually those given by Google Maps, and are only a rough guide. The 'My Rating' column indicates my own feelings about the walk, in comparison to the other walks here - I have enjoyed all these walks, but those that were particularly good I have given 1-3 *s, with *** indicating my most favourite walks.  The 'Opposite included in list' column merely indicates whether I've included the walk twice, both clockwise and anti-clockwise (it's really for my own benefit so I can easily see which routes I've yet to walk in both directions).

WARNING: When I originally started writing up these walks, I didn't really intend them to be used as 'route descriptions' for other people to follow. However I am aware that a few people are using them that way, and I now try to make sure my descriptions give enough route details so that they can be followed. Unfortunately I have a dreadful tendency to get 'left' and 'right' confused. So if you want to try any of these walks yourself, I very strongly recommend that you try to follow the route description on a map first. If you do find (or think you find) any mistakes please let me know by email  and I will make any corrections as soon as I can (usually I check emails every day). However, I think the walks on this page have adequate route descriptions to be followed (but walks that they have links to may not!).
