An enjoyable walk in two sections, making it ideal for a lunchtime stop in Capel village. There is an option to shorten the route by completing just the first loop. The walk passes through farmland and woodland, with beautiful wildflowers in the spring. There are good views to Leith Hill and the North Downs. The walk includes a few steady gradients. The paths through fields and woodland can be quite marshy and muddy so good boots are required and wellingtons are recommended for the winter months. You will need to negotiate several kissing gates plus 17 stiles (10 within the first loop and 7 within the second). All the stiles in the first loop have open fence surrounds making them suitable for most dogs to pass through, but one stile on the second loop is enclosed by wire mesh and so dogs will need a lift over this. You will be sharing some of the fields with horses and sheep and sometimes cattle so take care with dogs. We have received feedback that horses in one field during the second loop can be overly inquisitive, especially with dogs. Allow 3 hours (1.5 hours per loop). If you are looking for refreshments, The Crown pub is at the start of the walk. There is also a petrol station with shop opposite, and a newsagent further south along The Street. Ordinance Survey Map: Explorer 146 Dorking, Box Hill & Reigate. This walk follows public footpaths and bridleways which cross private land. Information is included for your interest, but please respect people's privacy, keep dogs under control and remember the Countryside Code.
