Good romp through the fields! Completed in around 2h at a moderate/fast pace. Easy in most places with some moderate sections. The waypoints are mostly well documented, though take care at Waypoint 4 where the correct path is at around 10 o’clock and not really straight ahead as written. Keep the triangle of wooden fencing on your right and you won’t go wrong. In November the paths, particularly across fields, were rutted, wet and very muddy. Good sturdy waterproof boots essential - wouldn’t recommend wellies due to the length of the walk / lack of ankle support. If you expect rain, don’t attempt without a good waterproof - little to no shelter for the majority of the trail. It can also get very windy in the exposed segments. Plenty of wildlife to see, including pheasants and starling murmurations if you’re lucky (as I was!). Road sections are very short, and with no traffic. This trail is also extremely quiet - I didn’t encounter anyone for the entire route. This is a great one to complete at pace for a proper workout. Would walk again.

Nice lovely walk, some place were very muddy but mainly due to amount of rain lately. Some parts are very open with amazing countryside views. On one part a large tree is covering the walk path so you need to get over that. Some other parts a little overgrown but still passable. I enjoyed this walk .

Nice walk but a fair amount on the road

A lovely circular walk. Very muddy on a mid October day. Easy to follow Waypoints. Also you can follow the National Trust gold signs.

The views from the southern half of the island over the harbour are truly beautiful. Most of the time the access gates cause no problems and MOD buzz through without even needing to talk to them. However, I have had an issue in the past where no response from the gate meant that the walk was terminated, this was only on one occassion though. Well worth the trip.

Pleasant walk, especially for the dog, however the road noise from the A27 (pretty much a motorway at this point) does detract from it. Tend to head to Thorney Island instead now.

Dark but fun

Nice walk mostly dog friendly, strange beginning, pub half way round, dogs can not go in the lakes because of elegies

Great trail through woodland bridleways north of Lasham airfield. The route loops around an oilfield you don't see but is there. A little muddy in places but nothing major, should be good for all seasons.

Nice walk across River Test and estate lands. Kimbridge section has recently been deforested taking from the natural splendour of what was likely a more serene and shaded ramble.

Second time round this route, this time starting from the Vyne. One section still under repair but otherwise still same.

Lovely walk pretty through the woods a bit muddy easy to follow

The short loop was perfect for our puppy, plenty of people to meet I our way round as well as lots of ducks and some swans to see.

Fabulous walk with lovely sea views. Easy to gain access to the Island, ring the bell and the gate was opened, MOD did not ask for any details.. Plenty of benches around the route to take a well earned rest and enjoy the views. Would highly recommend this walk.

A lovely mid-September walk. A definite plus was the sloe bushes abundant with sloe berries that were duly picked ready for the Winters sloe Gin :) Not sure if we went wrong but the walk was 5.2 miles. Also the view of the House at the end wasn't as impressive as we were expecting but loved the walk on a very hot September day. Glad of the tree cover for half of the walk! PS didn't realise that if you walked to the Church and out the other side you can get into the House groups for free - not sure they want you to know about that though :)

Good beginning but lots of walking between high hedges making it difficult to see the beautiful scenery. The path was very busy as there was a running event on the path. In general most of the runners were considerate but some running with dogs took over the path and on some cases almost took me out. I am looking forward to the next 12 miles to see what it is like.
