A circular woodland walk from the Francis Corner car park near Shere in Surrey. The walk passes through a mixed working woodland and includes a short section of the North Downs Way. At the Little Kings Wood viewing point you will be rewarded with magnificent views across the downs. The walk follows forest tracks most of which are stone and well made, but there are some parts that can get muddy. There are a few slopes but these are reasonably gentle. There are no stiles or gates but you are likely to be sharing the paths with both cyclists and horse riders. Dogs are welcome off lead as long as they are under control. Approximate time 1.5 hours.

Great walk especially if you have a dog with you. No roads to worry about & as well as being a lovely walk through forests, it is nice & cool in this hot weather.

Good walk on a very hot day despite most of the signs missing, managed to find our way round. Disappointed with the view point as very overgrown & had to stand on the bench to see anything!

Easy walk, solid underfoot so good for after wet weather. Walked to the viewpoint but this was very overgrown with brambles which obscured the view. (Sept 2017). Thank you for posting this walk.
