A circular walk from the village of Ewhurst in Surrey. The walk explores the beautiful local countryside, with stunning areas of mixed woodlands, rolling meadows, pretty streams and picturesque cottages and farms along the way. In the spring you will enjoy dazzling displays of bluebells and, on the return leg, there is a perfectly-framed view of Pitch Hill within the Surrey Hills. This walk is published through a collaboration with the Surrey County Council. The walk includes several steady climbs and descents throughout and follows a mixture of paths and tracks through woodlands, meadows and farmland. Some stretches can be very muddy (and slippery) after periods of rain and in winter, so good boots are required (or wellies with grips at the wettest times). A few paths are quite narrow and so can be a little overgrown in summer. There are a couple of short stretches along quiet lanes, so take care of traffic at these points. You will need to negotiate some gates and staggered barriers plus 16 stiles. There are medium-large size fence gaps or dog flaps alongside all but one stile (our standard poodle only needed a hand to climb this one stile). Remember, this number of stiles will make the walk slower and more tiring. Whilst most of the paths are fenced away from livestock (with wooden or electric fencing), you will cross a couple of paddocks that are likely to be holding horses. Allow 2.5 hours. If you are looking for refreshments, The Bulls Head public house is conveniently located at the start and end of the walk. Ordnance Survey Maps: Explorer 145 Guildford and Farnham and Explorer OL34 Crawley and Horsham. 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.

A lovely walk around the outbacks of Ewhurst crossing many streams, pleasant woodland, not too hilly but very muddy in places essential to have a good pair of walking boots also a nice pub at the end with great food served

Completed the walk in Nov so expected muddy tracks and wore boots. Lovely woodland scenes. Mainly flat walking but a few stiles. Directions good and walk as described. Thanks. It took us 2.5 hours with a a short refreshment stop.

Really enjoyed this walk until we arrived at the muddy swampy part. Lots to see and some lovely views too. Spent the last couple of miles being attacked constantly by horse flies which couldn�t be helped. Thanks for posting this walk!

Still very boggy in June. Also lots of quite narrow single file paths.
