A circular walk starting from the Whitehill viewpoint near Kingsclere in Hampshire. The walk passes through a stunning part of the North Hampshire Downs and includes a section of the Wayfarers Walk long distance path. The views are spectacular throughout and on a clear day you will be able to see for miles across the downs. Bird lovers are also likely to be rewarded with a good chance of sightings of buzzards, kestrels and skylarks. The paths pass mainly through woodland and across fields and so are likely to be muddy after wet weather. There are a couple of sections of road walking on quiet country lanes and a number of steady ascents and descents. The walk passes through a number of kissing gates (we understand all the original stiles were replaced by gates in 2018) and also passes through a field which is likely to contain cattle. Approximate time 3 hours.

Fantastic walk with incredible views. Even stopped for blackberry picking en-route. The dogs loved it. Would thoroughly recommend.

We really enjoyed this walk, although no mud or water for my boys!! We stopped half way at the vine in Hannington and had lunch before setting off again
