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

This trail was good. A lot of litter/fly tipping and some trees down over the path due to the recent storms. Came across a section with some fairly aggressive dogs running loose so had to make a detour through the back of Iwade. Lovely views over the marshes and loads of different bird species to see. We did the route backwards, walking from Rainham to Swale train stations.

Nice walk! very muddy and boggy expecially through the woods. Lots of wildlife

I added a bit of a dog leg onto the route between miles 4 and 5, the elevation was really difficult but fantastic for hill training and stamina. Amazing views, posted some below. LOVE this walk.

The hike was lovely. The rubbish was not. My partner and I completed this hike on Sat 29th of Dec 2018. We only brought one empty rubbish bag, and it just wasn’t enough to collect all the rubbish on the trail. Our bag quickly filled up less than 2km into our hike.

Nice in parts. Went anti clockwise so to get the long road out of the way. The route then took us through the golf course which requires following the red line on the phone very carefully as there is no path and it rather alarmingly took us across two fairways where fortunately no one was playing a shot. Then back onto busy roads and so the first 30 minutes was not great. After that it was mainly pretty countryside interspersed with occasional bits of motorway and A road. Going anticlockwise means the one big steep hill is down rather than up.
At the end there was a sense that you never really properly escaped the metropolis but it had its moments.

Parking £2.50 for the day at Harrietsham Station. Lovely views. I would say more moderate than easy on this one as I am by no means a hiker, but am walk/run fit, this was on a similar level to a harder trail I followed recently. The weather was good but there was a lot of mud and large puddles, some blocking paths completely so go prepared for this if using the trail at the tail end of the year! I have added some photos to show just how lovely this countryside is! Look out for birds of prey too!

A definite challenge! Rated as moderate but some of the climbs were harsh! Beautiful scenery, we almost missed kits Coty but glad we found it before we walked right past! The end stretch along a main road is disappointing but we managed a short divert through woodland to take away the traffic and noise!

short walk. Be careful of railway line.

Great with kids!

great walk but lot's of stiles if you have dog's and the ringlestone inn has now closed down

A lovely walk with varied terrain and scenery. Highly recommended...

Enjoyable family six mile walk...

very picturesque walk, enjoyed it very much. the signing not great around the woods post the national trust walk, the yellow marks no longer present on the trees and hence was difficult to follow. Otherwise enjoyed the walk

Part pilgrims way, part farmland with good views, lots of stinging nettles!

A good trail which follows a signed Coldrum Trail for much of the way with an extension to take in the stones. At least that was our impression, as the markers were not always obvious and we used the app map several times. The stones are worth visiting, what an amazing find. Near there appeared to be a path which could cut the route in half for those that prefer a short hike. We had dogs and other than the Trosley country park itself we had them unleashed for much of the walk.

One of the best mountain bike trails

Excellent walk. Be careful walking in days after rain.

No parking at Beltring, so we parked at Yalding and walked in reverse.
Trail is on a very dangerous road initially near Beltring. We avoided this by simply turning around and going back to Yalding.
