Overview

A circular walk on & around the Northern Malvern Hills. Climbing from the North Quarry Car Park we reach North Hill & Table Hill before traversing south to Sugarloaf Hill. We then climb up to the highest point on the Malvern Hills, the Worcestershire Beacon (425m) for panoramic views (on a clear day). Continuing along Shires Ditch & The Geopark Way over Summer Hill. We then turn northwards, to head back on a lower path on the eastern side, through the woods, to St Anne’s Well and Green Valley to return to the car park.
