A circular walk close to Liss on the borders of West Sussex and Hampshire, enjoying large sections of mixed woodland and a few quiet arable fields. There is lots of wildlife to enjoy and great views of the South Downs ridge. Half way around, the walk takes you through the idyllic village of Rogate with its quaint church and classic village pub. The walk has several steady climbs and descents throughout, plus a couple of short steeper sections. The paths and bridleways are rutted and uneven and can also get very muddy at times, so good boots are a must. There is one stretch along a quiet country lane, so take care of occasional traffic (or tractors!) here. You will need to negotiate a few gates plus one stile (which has a gap at the side that most dogs should be able to pass through). A few of the narrower paths can be a bit overgrown in the height of summer. There is no livestock on route and well-behaved dogs will be able to enjoy lots of time off lead. Allow 2.5 hours.

Good walk with a variety of scenery. Came across the mountain bike trails which were busy but well marshalled.
