There are a few routes up St Catherine’s Hill, which all start and end at a convenient car park. Once at the summit, the walk can be extended to include the East side of the Hill. The Hill has been in use for 3000 years and the summit with the Miz-maze, the ruined Norman Chapel buried under the Beech trees, and the deep Iron Age ramparts, affords perhaps the best view of Winchester, the Cathedral and St Cross Church, from this side of the valley.Walk added by

6 years agoThere are some lovely routes around this area but on a nice day it's car park hell and can be impossible to park in the small parking area or on any of the surrounding roads. There are also quite often cattle grazing on the hill so be careful in that area with any dog that likes chasing!
6 years agoThanks for posting this walk - I took my energetic German Shepherd on it this morning and he's now fast asleep! The views are fab and it offers great variety with the riverside path, wooded areas, open fields and steep hills. Really enjoyable!
