Explore the most popular Horseback Riding trails in England with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

Stunning 360 views once you climb up out of Scorriton. It was a long climb but well worth it. Very dry when we hiked it, but can imagine after heavy rain parts would be very boggy. A few streams and rivers for the dog to drink from. Really recommend if you are fairly fit and don’t mind hill climbing.

A nice 5km loop and an easy pathway to follow.

Great route and gets your horse fit with the hills going up and down! Very nice view a few canter points and overall a nice relaxing walk. Only downside is that parking is very limited and had barely enough space to park the trailer and to load & unload, although I have a good loader and he went in from an angle thankfully.

Nice and shady, pretty much either gradually up or gradually down, but not too taxing. Quite flinty paths so not really pushchair friendly. Fabulous views. Exactly 2 hours.

Great for dogs and pathed walkways Quite a lot of cyclists so best to go off track where you can

we did this walk clockwise rather than the directions suggested. The views from Holmbury Hill are stunning and the trails down the west side are nicely varied in size, undulation and surface. the long straight fire road down the east side is a little uninspiring although pleasant enough hence we did that first !

Easy trail, lots of shade so great on a hot sunny day. We are reasonably fit and did it in 2 hrs.

lovely walk and amazing view point!!!

Pleasant walk with some great views. The last stretch, however, seemed to go on forever! Worth pointing out that a couple of the staggered barriers mentioned no longer exist,

A special place. A mixture of sandy heath and ponds and wetlands.

Really nice walk suitable for dogs off leads all stone paths

Part of the trail between oaken and husphins Lane was narrow and overgrown. At the Husphins lane end of the path there is a sign saying it has been temporarily closed since April 2020. Apart from that stretch, it is a pleasant walk with some nice views.

Beautiful! Took our breath away. Lovely spring flowers too! Lots of shade - a lot of horse poo too, dog kept eating it. First half is better than second. :)

Brilliant little walk. Great views and easy walk path.

lovely woodland walk passing magical homesteads

Perfect for cycling, relatively flat with slight inclines. The tunnels are really cool, and views are fantastic.

Very fun riding but the final elevation to the top was extremely difficult to carry the bikes up. Also rocky steps on the way down gave a flat tyre but apart from that a good, technical ride

Lovely walk in the sun, great in helping to get through self-isolation.

Extremely muddy!

Great walk and views. Pretty muddy currently as the area is very popular with mountain bikers. Last stretch was boring, I may try the other way around and finish with the views.

Lovely gentle walking route around the Great Park -recommended

Only half of this walk is nice. It is spoilt by the walk along the busy main road in Monk Fryston with narrow footpaths and then again for over a mile along the footpath right next to the really busy A162. This road experiences a lot of heavy good vehicles too. The route description explaining the walk to be "lightly trafficked" is simply not true. Also don't try this walk after wet weather. The part where you have to cross a field can get VERY sloppy.

mid January, very cold after frosty night, brilliant sunshine and clear sky. The tarmac/grit path was excellent with only one place of 2mt where there was mud across the path. The sculptures are worth seeing, there are no long views however the countryside is beautiful. Like all ex railway walks it can be a tad boring and monotonous especially in the cuttings where you lose the sunshine. perfect for off road cycling with youngsters.
