Walking Route Maps
There are lots of walking routes marked on the hill. You can also freestyle by joining different paths as they cross. All routes can effectively become circular walks if you have a moderate sense of direction.
Although they have signs for the walks, sometimes it is useful to have a map to plan a walk. An ordinance survey paper map is useful for navigating the hill and for hiking routes from the hill.
There are many walking apps on the internet covering this area, my favourite is Komoot who are fantastic for hiking.

Walks on Robinswood Hill in Gloucester
It is a beautiful walk to the top. My only disappointment was that I haven’t climbed the hill more. It is stunning. I will now walk on the hill more frequently on different routes in different seasons.
These are all of my photographs from the walk. It was a very nice day, as you can see from the blue sky in the photographs. There were some stunning views of The Cotswolds, the Malvern Hills, Severn Estuary & The Forest Of Dean.
