A walk from Ewell West rail station to Malden Manor rail station, following the course of the Hogsmill River and part of the London Loop long distance path. This walk is published through a collaboration with Surrey County Council. The walk is relatively flat, with just a couple of gentle slopes along the way. Whilst some of the paths are surfaced, several long stretches of the riverside route follow dirt paths and grass banks which can get very muddy, so good boots are a must. If you would like a longer walk, this route can be combined with Hogsmill River Trail Part Two, making a walk of 9 miles. If 4.5 miles is too much for you, the walk can be shortened to 2.5 miles by finishing at the bus stops on Kingston Road. There are no stiles or kissing gates, but the second half of the route (after Kingston Road) follows very narrow paths (meaning this stretch would not be suitable for a pushchair or disability buggy). Approximate time 2 hours. There are toilets at Ewell West rail station at the start of the walk. In terms of refreshments there are several places along the river suitable for a picnic, or you will find the Hogsmill Toby Cavery on Cromwell Road, just after the Kingston Road crossing. Ordnance Survey Map: Explorer 61 London South. 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.

Good for a gentle mosey. Not many cafes for a stop en route and the Ewell court tearoom, which looks nice, is cash only. Better finishing up in Ewell as pubs and cafes, as well as bits and bobs to see.

Nice Walk.. Took the pug on the train at the end which was fun
