A circular and fairly strenuous walk from Box Hill in the Mole Valley district of Surrey. Box Hill is well known for its box trees, its plethora of butterflies and also as the central feature of the cycling road races for the 2012 Olympics. The route heads along a short section of the North Downs Way before turning north descending steadily through Juniper Bottom. The walk then climbs again into Juniperhill Woods, heads down into the village of Mickleham and then back up the west side of Box Hill. There are superb views throughout (so it's worth choosing a clear day) and plenty of opportunity to enjoy the local wildlife. The route has several fairly steep climbs and descents, including one long climb up a flight of steps. There are also a couple of gates and one stile (but this is fairly low and has open sides for dogs to pass under). The paths can get quite muddy and slippery after wet weather. Approximate time 2 to 2.5 hours.

Pleasant walk, but the parts around Box Hill can be quite crowded in good weather. Rating as "hard" is puzzling, moderate at most.

Just amazing all round, great work out, great views and just a top place! Visitor centre is very expensive so pack a lunch but cannot be given less than the 5 stars it deserves.
