lovely walk as always forgot to turn my recording on time about the walk....at the end of the walk you are in the open space, but the view Is amazing. in the beginning surrounded by trees, but you can have your quick picnic next to the streams

Lovely walk through the forest. Some spots was too wet to pass but possible going around it.

Not the typical vibe of the usual SDW National trail. Starts off with a fair bit of lane going up hill, but you’re soon rewarded with the iconic views of the rolling hills of the South Downs. There’s more forested and enclosed track than other parts of the SDW, making for a nice bit of variation. The Devil’s Jumps are definitely worth a slight detour, as well as a quick wander through the Buriton Chalk Pits Quarry at the beginning.

Slightly muddy, even in early July. But, lovely walk combining open heathland with dense mixed woodland with plenty of shade, together with small streams. A bit up and down but worth the effort.

Lovely easy walk.

We did this in reverse, as we wanted to see the view over the village at the start. Beautiful landscapes of woodlands, meadows, crops and undulating ruts and hills on Noar hill. Like the added information too. Will come again.

Did this walk yesterday and covered the distance in just over 6 hours with a 20 min lunch break. Think the climb over Beacon Hill though a short cut slowed me down as my legs were starting to feel stiff from then on.

If you stick to main paths it’s fine but can be muddy/clay off tracks on grassy tracks. Nice walk though.

I wasn't expecting this walk to be as pretty as it was: lots of copses and fields to walk through. Had a 10 and 8 year old, plus dog. All managed perfectly well. Note there are a few short stretches of road to navigate and a few fields with cattle, so if you've got a dog there are times when he does need to be on a lead. Great family walk.

Good but had to go off route a lot to avoid roads

A nice enough trail in some beautiful countryside. It was over 12km for us. The agricultural work in the fields meant you couldn’t follow field edges easily. Disappointed the length was way more than described as we are all beat now! The village of Exton is beautiful!

Good with kids easy walk and lots of fallen trees for climbing

Be careful, halfway through the walk it says no entry on the field - walk along the dried out river that runs alongside and all done.

Really enjoyed this walk on a beautiful sunny day. Very varied with fields paths and woodland trails. 95%. of the instructions were extremely clear. We managed the route no problem. The first field was absolutely beautiful with tiny purple flowers all around. Just gorgeous (end of June). The bridge area was not flooded at all so we had no issues there. Might be worth taking sting cream as I got stung by Nettle's a couple of times. There is a pub on the walk called the George Inn which looked nice and there is also 3-4 pubs at the beginning/end of the walk plus a cute place called the bumblebee cafe. They sell local ice cream.

Lovely trail. We went quite early in the morning, so it was very quiet, lots of birdsong and young deer. Definitely a summer walk, as there could be a few boggy parts in water weather.

Nice walk - some open parts and some foresty. Quite a bit on gravelled paths.

Great walk around Winchester and St Catherine's Hill. We started from a free car park on Garnier Road at foot of the hill. This allows you to tackle the hill while you still have energy. The route in and out of Winchester should be adjusted so you can see history in this city. We took in the The Kings Gate, Peninsula Square, The Great Hall, West Gate, High Street, King Alfred and the Cathedral. There are a lot more options.
