A walk from Malden Manor rail station to Kingston rail station, following the course of the Hogsmill River and part of the London Loop long distance path. This walk is published through a collaboration with Surrey County Council. The walk is almost entirely flat. Whilst some of the paths are surfaced, several long stretches of the riverside route follow dirt paths and grass banks which can get very muddy, so good boots are a must. If you would like a longer walk, this route can be combined with Hogsmill River Trail Part One, making a walk of 9 miles. If 4.5 miles is too much for you, the walk can be shortened to 2 miles by finishing at Berrylands rail station. There are no stiles or kissing gates, just a short flight of steps within Kingston at the end of the route. These steps can be avoided, meaning it would be possible to take a rugged pushchair or disability buggy along the route when the grass paths are firm enough. Approximate time 2 hours. There are toilets at Kingston rail station at the end of the walk. In terms of refreshments there are several options. You will find The Berry pub and The Walnut coffee shop, just before Berrylands Station, the Duke of Buckingham pub and Lucca's fish and chip cafe on Villiers Road or a huge choice of riverside cafes, pubs and restaurants at Charters Quay in Kingston at the end of the walk.

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