Feeling energetic and fancy a walk with spectacular views of the surrounding area, then take a amble up Robinswood hill and see how long it takes you to reach the top and touch the millennium beacon.
There is a fairly big car park with toilets that can get a bit grotty. The Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust also have their headquarters there
As I live on the side of this hill, I walk up it regularly - from different directions.
I agree with datcat about the toilets - I never use them as they stink!
The car park is pretty big and as it's tarmac and gravel, it is easy to drive on.
The pathways onto the hill get extremely muddy, as you would predict, but there are tarmac path ways around quite a bit of the hill.
Sometimes they have vehicle trips to the top of the hill, which is a great idea for those of limited mobility - as the views from the top of the hill really are spectacular.
Get up early and get to the top of the hill before anyone has woken up - it's like pure perfection!
If you have small children and don't want to walk all the way up the hill, then the hill farm and rare breeds centre is great.
Nice walks, interesting wildlife, ancient hay meadows, trees and hedges. Cracking views from the top, but slippery when wet. Gets busy ongood weekends. The toilets are subject to misuse as are any public toilets, but are cleaned daily.
