Getting There

An easy access walk along the North Downs Way with spectacular views, taking in Colley Hill and Reigate Hill and visiting the attractions of Reigate Fort and the Inglis Memorial. This walk is published through a collaboration with the Surrey County Council. The walk follows wide surfaced paths throughout -- some compacted stone and some old tarmac -- which are very firm but a little uneven and with some shallow surface mud. There are a few gradients, but these are all gentle to moderate. There are no stiles, steps or kissing gates on the route, just a few single gates. Given these conditions, the route is suitable for rugged pushchairs and disability buggies. You will be sharing one section of Colley Hill with Belted Galloway cattle that are used for conservation grazing, so take care with dogs (it is worth noting that this is a popular stretch of the North Downs Way so the cattle are accustomed to both walkers and dogs). Allow 1.5 hours. There are toilets and a popular cafe kiosk (the Urban Kitchen) in the Wray Lane car park, half way round the walk. Ordnance Survey Map: Explorer 146 Dorking, Box Hill and Reigate. This walk follows public footpaths and bridleways which cross private and public land. Information is included for your interest, but please respect people's privacy, keep dogs under control and remember the Countryside Code.

The walk starts and finishes at the National Trust pay and display car park at Margery Wood, just a 3 minute drive from Junction 8 of the M25. From Junction 8 of the M25, take the A217 north and after just 150 yards, take the first left turn, Margery Lane. Follow this lane all the way to the far end where you will find the car park directly ahead. The car park is free for National Trust members and £4 per day (or part of a day) for non-members (correct March 2016). There are no payment machines, payment must be made using a mobile phone and credit or debit card, using the instructions on the car park information board. Approximate post code KT20 7BD.

Start of trail have to go over noisy m25 motorway bridge after that, gets much better with beautiful views down over Reigate and there’s interesting things along the way including a fort, the forest walk is nice also, a cafe at the return point, where you can stop off, then off the way back you came. Overall nice easy walk. Would recommend just for the views!
