What a smell of the ferest!

Beautiful sunny day - glad of the woodland shade. So peaceful and relaxing - we didn’t find it at all boring. Just what was needed after a busy week at work. Pine plantations, birds of prey and shimmering dragonflies. Hard to park in Vicarage Road - parked slightly more towards the village. Hardly saw anyone else - just a few cyclists.

A lovely walk with Kaire. Not to hard but long 32km, Sun was out and the birds singing. There’s pubs along the way if you want a drink or food. We stoped for 20 minutes,

Easy to follow but quite boring except the first bit. Just got wide tracks through plantations. No views as such. Very suitable for biking.

Excellent. Straight from the car park into a beautiful woodland walk. And the views from the top of hurtwood are stunning if you like forest walks them would recommend.

Lovely walk through the trees and up to the most amazing views

Pleasant easy walk with just the one gentle hill. We did it on a warm summers Friday and enjoyed the long shady stretches. Amazingly quiet considering it’s a stones throw from London and it was the school holidays. Hardly saw a soul.

Very easy to follow. Particularly like stopping at Holmbury St Mary cricket club. Very pleasant hike through a lovely part of Surrey Hills

Enjoyable walk. Easy to follow route with a few hills. Quite a few cyclists around the day we did the route but most of the paths are wide so no problem.

Woodland walk with two nice viewpoints, a long sunken path, large patch of bluebells (late April) and lots of mountain bike paths.

First half was very pleasant. Long final stretch got a bit boring, and was hot on a sunny day.

I've lived in this area, and been a regular visitor, for 25 years. This walk took me to parts of the forest that I'd never visited before and taught me a few things I didn't know about the forest. I didn't find the wooden post with red arrows and the fenced ancient lane - I'll just have to do the walk again and have another look!

We loved this walk - and so did our very lively dog! Definitely be doing it again. Agree about the last stretch being long but it was a nice steady climb.

Lovely walk. Not too steep hills or too muddy. Very well guided instructions.

6th May 2017 - lovely walk through Swinley Forest and saw very few people. enjoyed sighting at least 8 varieties of birds including Siskins, Buntings and kites.

Car park 5 is closed for logging at the moment. ADMIN RESPONSE: Thank you for letting us know. We can see from the Friends of the Hurtwood website that the car park will be closed for the remainder of 2016. We have updated the walk details accordingly with temporary parking arrangements.

First half of the walk is very enjoyable with some lovely views. However the final long stretch via the bridleway is pretty dull.

Great walk. Really enjoyed it.
