The path from here gradually climbs uphill, through woods, past Reigate Fort, the water tower and masks, to the top.
There are many pill boxes, along the path, left over from the war.
At the top of the hill at 3 miles is the Georgian Pavilion, presented to the Corporation of the Borough of Reigate by Lieutenant-Colonel Robert William Inglis in 1909. From here there are splendid views along the Downs and to the south.
