Guildford, Surrey Map

A nice mornings exercise with a few gentle hills and plenty of points of interest to take a breather whilst viewing. Directions where well thought through and provided us with the necessary information to dress appropriately for long grass and stinging nettles. As this was a fine dry day, there was little mud however I can imagine after a few days rain this would get very messy. This walk would make a good loop to add to a trip along the pilgrims way to newlands corner and back again

Only a few muddy patches could be said to mitigate a perfect shortish walk. There is plenty of variety to the route including a castle, a high street, a river, meadows and cattle - busy in town, on one’s own in the country. The route is easy to follow too.

Would definitely recommend this walk to anybody with a dog! Be prepared for the super steep hill at the start of the walk but after that it is very enjoyable. Lovely walk which takes you all through countryside and past St Marthas Church which overlooks Chilworth and Albury.

Lovely walk great views. Car park quite busy.

Great views and not much road noise. Nice cut through a small village with interesting buildings and a great pub for lunch.

This has a few steep hills but the views are outstanding. You go through woodlands, fields and through Shalford which is great for a food stop.

I loved this walk. Varied and good views.

Nice walk in the countryside. Steep hill to start, nice bluebells in April. Sharpe descent and then a riverside walk. If you are an NT member you can get a tour of Shalford Mill too.

Didn’t enjoy this walk found instructions at start confusing and very busy

Completed this walk on a lovely sunny Saturday and thoroughly enjoyed it. Beautiful rolling countryside but lots of shady paths to shelter from the sun if necessary. Free car park which was half empty on a busy Easter weekend. Varying scenery - rivers, locks, weirs, stately home - loved it. Directions very good - great to have the map to double check. Stopped at The Seahorse in Shalford for a drink in their lovely garden. Dogs welcome in the garden and inside the pub.

Lovely sunny walk - started at The Jolly Farmer pub as car park free (Whitmoor Car Park at the start now charges). Gorgeous paths through woodland and heathland mostly dry now. A little hard to find the correct path when crossing roads as some paths seemed little used and overgrown. GPS map great though and got us in the right direction. Pub fantastic - lovely garden and dogs very welcome.

The pathway is still closed, Clandon in is vey busy and the pavements are very narrow. This walk is very nice but there is a constant hum of traffic

This was a lovely walk, nice incline gradients with good ground and glorious views of Surrey at the top. Walked 01/03/19.

Worth the climb at the beginning for the lovely views from the top. Another walk with plenty to see along the way. We were spoilt in the warm February sunshine and very little mud at all.

Lovely walk, took me an hour and 20 mins on a sunny February afternoon. Superb views.

Lovely walk, nice variety of surfaces, instructions excellent, ty.

Good walk and think it will be better in the summer (with a picnic!).

Excellent walk, was a beautiful day. Agree the suburban cut through wasn't great but this 5minute walk is nothing compared to the beauty of the other hour and half.

Like several other Surrey Wildlife locations, the car park will soon cost £1.30 per hour but currently is still free. Worth noting that Wild About Coffee landrover is often in car park and Phil is lovely to chat to over a drink.

Great walk especially if you have a dog with you. No roads to worry about & as well as being a lovely walk through forests, it is nice & cool in this hot weather.

We found this route hard to follow, a lot of the signs have rotted and are no longer visible. The forest tracks are a little monotonous and, finally, the view point has almost disappeared. A plus was the nearby mobile cafe in West Hanger car park, Staple Lane. ADMIN RESPONSE: Remember to use the App's live GPS map to help follow the walks. It shows your live location (a blue dot) on the route map (a red line) at all times - this is particularly useful in woodlands and when signs are in disrepair.

Great walk. Really enjoyed it. slightly spoiled by the amount of piles of dog poo left by lazy owners.

Good walk on a very hot day despite most of the signs missing, managed to find our way round. Disappointed with the view point as very overgrown & had to stand on the bench to see anything!

This is one of the many paths starting from Newlands Corner parking or bus stop (no bus on Sundays): - there’s also one going east with terrific views before descending the hill down to the Silent Pool, then you cross the road and walk through the fields. This is the trail where Agatha Christie once mysteriously disappeared for 3 days. - then there one to the west which shares the initial trail with the one mentioned here but then goes all the way back to Guildford and passes through a lovely forest with the flowers in full blossom during April/May.

Completed the longer version today. Lovely walk, fantastic views and lots of variety. Long trousers advised. A couple of muddy patches (it hasn't rained for over a week). Thoroughly enjoyable way to spend a morning

Great views of the Surrey countryside.

An amazing walk, excellent views, wonderful trails and super exciting as a family walk. Thoroughly enjoyed!!!

Great walk, with lots to see and the views are as described which are fantastic. Directions were accurate as always and this could be one of my regular walks for sure!
