This tranquil walk through rural Surrey passes close to the neighbouring counties of Kent, East Sussex and West Sussex. The route passes a number of farms, past fields of sheep, cattle and horses and through woodland. There are extensive views to the chalk ridge of the North Downs, and the Weald to the south. Part of the route follows the Vanguard Way, a long distance footpath linking the London suburbs to the south coast. This walk is published through a collaboration with the Surrey County Council. The route includes several climbs and descents throughout. The tracks and paths through woodland and farmland are mostly firm, but some sections can become very muddy and slippery in winter and after periods of rain so stout boots are recommended all year and wellingtons with grips in winter/after wet periods. You will need to negotiate a few kissing gates, a stream crossing (the stream is narrow but can be deep) plus three stiles (one of which is enclosed with wire fencing so dogs will need a lift over). You will be sharing some of the fields with livestock (sheep, horses and maybe cattle) so take particular care with dogs. Allow 2.5 to 3 hours, depending on the conditions underfoot. If you are looking for refreshments, the Plough Inn at the start of the walk is open all day. There are shops and other pubs in Dormansland village, half a mile from the start of the walk.

Information is included for your interest, but please respect people's privacy, keep dogs under control and remember the Countryside Code.Show more

An enjoyable walk from Dormans Station. The walk crosses Lingfield Park racecourse and golf course, passes through the Dormans Park estate and past the Cook's Pond Viaduct. This walk is published through a collaboration with the Surrey County Council. The walk has a few steady gradients. The paths are firm for the most part but the unmade sections through woodland and the golf course can get very muddy so good stout boots are recommended. You will need to negotiate some kissing gates and steps, but there are no stiles or livestock on route. The walk crosses a golf course so please show respect for the golfers by allowing them to play their shots before you cross and watch closely for any stray flying golf balls. Allow 2 hours. There are no pubs or shops along the route, but you can take an optional 10 minute detour to the village of Dormansland where there are public toilets, a shop and two pubs (The Royal Oak pub on the High Street and The Old House at Home pub on West Street). Ordnance Survey Map: Explorer 146 Dorking, Box Hill & Reigate (note: Dormansland village is covered on Explorer 147 Sevenoaks & Tonbridge). This walk follows public footpaths and bridleways which cross private and public land. Information is included for your interest, but please respect people's privacy, keep dogs under control and remember the Countryside Code.Show more

Best to avoid this trail if walking a dog as a lot of it is on paved roads and in areas unsuitable for dogs, which makes the walk difficult. However, for just walking without your four-legged friend, the views are spectacular. Show more

Fantastic route for walkers and bikers alike. Pretty easy terrain as there is only one major incline with several descents but mostly it is rolling hills. The challenge is more in the distance (for walkers). A large portion is on road but it is very quiet with hardly any traffic, usually. If you take a slight detour it includes a lovely country pub, and it is also possible to do the trail anti clockwise so that the hilly part is at the start if you prefer.Show more

Great walk, perfect length and pleasant overall with amazing views when you reach the top. The woods are old, magnificent. Since publishing this trail AllTrails has modified the trail so it goes much less along the main road and stays well within the forest as much as possible. Enjoy!Show more
