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

A tough walk , with some steep climbs, but rewarding views at the top from the ancient hill fort. We did it in late November, and there were some very muddy sections, as well as being windy at the top. Take layers. Dogs loved it.

Probably the best section of the SDW...the tea rooms at Jevington and Alfriston (prepare to wait for food so bring sandwiches on a sunny day) for a pint plus the views and paragliding...just remember Southease trains are 5 past the hour back to Lewes and Brighton.

Quite a climb up through a nice wooded area, but first part is close to traffic noise from A24. Horse and sheep so not Ideal for dog walking. Easy to follow trail and pleasant but would describe as moderate.

Fabulous varied walk including woodland, fields, hilltops (with stunning views). Some uphill walking. A bit muddy in parts (it had rained a lot the day before). Took us about five hours (with about half an hour for photos, visits to churches). Didn’t find anywhere to buy refreshments on the way so take your own. Hardly any people except at the first section on on the South Downs Way doing the East Loop anti-clockwise.

Wide well walkable or passable dirt roads (at least in dry soil). Runs through a gently rolling landscape with great panoramic views. Unfortunately, hardly any shade.
