Wandering off the side trails leads to bronze age burial mounds away from the crowds that are definitely worth seeing in addition to the main attraction.

A great route but quite overgrown in places.

Nice Walk, amazing views. Up hill at the start. Good for Dogs. Couple Stiles and Kissing gates but always space for my lab to get through.

New to the area and wanted to go along the hills. Did it on a warm evening, loads of nature to look out for and really nice views along the way (not just at the top). Thanks for putting it up ✌️

Interesting walking along the canal observing the narrow boats and we spoke with a couple 8 yr residents. Calm and quiet on the way back.

Free carpark, easy to follow route which is signposted. Lots of little stalls with home made refreshments on route so handy to have a few pounds in your pocket. Lovely varied walk taking in the village, some forestry and a golf course. Friendly route, lots of walkers around. Some of the gates maybe difficult for prams. Easy to do an extended version - 9.5k.

this is a trail packed with wildlife. geese , gray squirrel, ducks and more. very easy walking and very pleasant. I gave this trail only 2 stars because a large section is on a windy narrow road. this road is very dangerous and definitely not suitable for groups or children.

Dogs on the lead at certain times in the year as they have Sheep and Cows grazing. Nice short walk though to blow the cobwebs out and there are tea rooms and cafes in the village at the end.

This is an excellent walk and one of my favorites. A few things to know- the start is a little confusing. We used the GPS and followed our icon on our AllTrails map as it’s not clearly marked for the first half. First the parking lot was fenced off and it looks like it’s going to be developed into housing or something. Park on the road outside the playground in Colne. Second- don’t follow the map on the left side of the river. You need to be on the right and go through the playground and the old canal. The left is a dead end. Note: eventually you’ll come to a brick arch bridge. About 400 meters before that arch there is a track to the right. Take that and go up and over the bridge which is a farm road by the time you get up there. Now you’ll be on farm roads for a bit until you come to a junction- here you’ll need to take the middle track (unpaved) and then over a stile into a footpath. From here you’ll be in fields for a bit until you come to the main road and you’ll see the Black Dog. Footpath continues across the road. Now you’ll be on narrow roads again- this time through houses. Eventually you’ll come out to where Bowood estate is. Stay on road and continue till you come to Lansdowne Arms. Great stopping point for lunch as it’s about half way After this the loop is across the street from the Lansdowne and through the big gates into Bowood. In Bowood itself it’s very easy as they have done a great job if marking the trail almost all the way back to Colne.

Lovely varied walk moderate with one long stretch uphill. Amazing views, lovely church in secret valley. Opportunities for dogs off the lead.

Beautiful...part following the river, part bluebell woods..an amazing walk with lots of wildlife.

The trail was beautiful but the instructions on how to find the trail head were poor!

A great walk on a spring day. Very peaceful.

A pleasant walk through the village, along a short stretch of The Ridgeway and back down a disused railway. Not exactly the back of beyond but pleasing views and easy going.

Excellent walk with stunning vistas, much nicer than expected... Can recommend the Queens Arms for Sunday lunch

Excellent trail with great views and varied landscapes. Forest was covered in bluebells. Veer of to nice pub in Mendenhall or go into Marlborough but don’t miss The Merchants House.

A lovely waterside walk.

Beautiful scenery lovely walk only came across a couple of people during the walk

Stonehenge is a must see if you are in the UK. My friends and I choose to hike to the stones as it was overly priced to ride the bus to the top. We parked in the visitor area and it wasn’t expensive to park and didn’t require any reservations.. We began our hike by walking behind the bus stop near the gift store. On our hike we were able to explore and got to see some pretty fields that the people on the bus wouldn’t have been able to see. Once we got to the stones we were approximately 50 feet from them. The people who paid to ride to the bus wasn’t much closer to the stones than we were. The hike was about 2 miles. If you’re able to walk trials I would recommend it as I’m sure you’ll be glad you did. I would also recommend wearing comfortable shoes as there are rock on the trial and some incline.

This is the BEST FREE way to see Stonehenge. Parking at the visitor center and lot requires prior booking and can be VERY expensive. There are trails all across the surrounding fields and area that you can use. This one is the best and easiest. It also allows access to trails that can get you to Woodhenge and the nearby neolithic burial mounds. It also allows you to see the Stones outside of normal visitor hours. Park on the side of Willoughby Rd near the intersection with Fargo Road. From there walk straight down Byway 12. (You'll pass the neolithic burial mounds on your right.) Walk all the way to where the buses are letting people off and go through the gate. You'll walk along a dirt path about .2 miles next to the sidewalk that paying visitors are using. You can get about 50 feet from the stones. Total trip is about 2-2.5 miles. (You'll notice from this recording that we went in a wrong gate and had to backtrack.)

If you want some miles under your belt then it's a good yomp. The start and end are scenic but the walk through Calstone Downs then up to and along the Roman Road is quite dull and seems longer than that it is but a walk is a walk and it's taught me what I like and unlike �

We just wanted a leisurely walk and to see a little more of Malmesbury. This walk was ideals especially as it was so hot (28degrees), and we were able to paddle at Daniel’s well. As always, the route description was accurate and so easy to follow. 👍🏽

Really nice walk, one of the highlights being the clapper bridge. Easy to follow directions that didn't feel like four miles. Took us 2 1/2 hours on a rainy Wednesday in May.
