Again, the views from the Beacon are stupendous and it is well worth the climb. Take some water and a dog is a plus.

A long steady climb to the top,not difficult,the tarmac path is the easier route,but there are several small rocky steeper pathways from the wyche cutting at the bottom its about a 25 minute climb to the beacon ,worth the visit as you have a 360 degree view .

Our first trip here and we were surprised at the amount and variety of walkers and cyclists of a wide age range making it up here, on a sunny February day. It was a great day out.

The Beacon is accessible on foot via a tarmac track. Being the highest of the Hills it is a magnet for the casual tourist and offers agreeable views but rather boring surroundings. For the real joy of the area, go south to Midsummer or Raggedstone Hills.

Need to get up here more often by foot, bike or perhaps in the future if feeling weak by cable car....

Whilst it's a good climb it's very pleasant and on a clear day you can see for miles. We met a chap up there who had just completed his 49th climb to the summit in as many weeks - I ca see why he returns!

Walking amongst the Malverns is one of those pleasures you smile at whenever you remember it. Worcestershire beacon is the high point but there are enough opportunities across the range to entice the least energetic. Once at a height or especially on a ridge, the lack of vegetation offers a truly stunning view across the area.

Quite a steep climb up to the top, however the spot is accessible via road to a nearer spot. But the view from the top is simply breathtaking & worth the effort. If you have time its a good hike over the weekend...

Walked up to the Beacon from Great Malvern this morning just because I can. I've done this walk loads of times and I never grow tired of the views. I'm so lucky to have a beautiful place like this on my doorstep. If you want the easy route walk up from the Wyche Cutting. Either way you will get stunning... More
