Getting There

A circular walk from the Devil's Punch Bowl in Surrey, Gibbet Hill and Hindhead Common. There are spectacular views into the Punch Bowl and across the Surrey Hills as well as a chance to glimpse at the resident ponies and discover some chilling history. The walk has long but steady climbs and descents throughout. Additionally, the paths can become very muddy in the winter and after periods of rain. There are no stiles along the way, just a number of kissing gates and steps. The common is grazed by wild ponies and Highland Cattle so take care if you are with dogs. There is a cafe and toilets by the car park at the start.

The walk starts and finishes from the National Trust car park at the Devil's Punchbowl, just outside Hindhead. Leave the A3 at the junction just south of the Hindhead Tunnel and follow the brown signs. The car park fee is £4 per day. Approximate post code GU26 6AB.

Easy trail with some fantastic views- just made for a sunny autumn day. A bit muddy but plenty of ways to avoid by walking up banks. Didn’t think any slopes were steep. One point, there was a massive queue of cars for the NT car park, but there’s side roads available in Hindhead where parking is available.

Saw some horses and cows. Some great viewpoints, you can follow a few paths which go off the main one amd some nice secluded spots to stop.

Good moderately distanced walk, but very muddy in places due to excessive rain lately. Steep in a couple of places and nice view from top near the start. Saw some wild ponies but no cattle.

Makes a nice easy stroll with some interesting artifacts and monuments to check out along the way. Watch out for the stinging nettles if you move off the main road at all.

Nice walk. Some of the slopes are quite steep so take decent footwear

Muddy with lots of woodland so would have liked more contrast. Pleasant but not memorable.

Really nice walk, not overly strenuous except one climb up a road track.

Very steep in places and uneven underfoot. Apart from that very enjoyable.
