A round walk in West Sussex, with stunning views over South and East Harting and expansive views over a good part of the walk. The walk starts in a National Trust car park and commences on the South Downs Way. Whilst it is up and down, there is nothing too extreme by way of gradients. You may come across sheep or cattle on the route (so keep dogs under close control) but there are no stiles (only gates). Be aware that the last section runs fairly close to a fast road which is not always visible from the path, so a lead for your dog also through this section would be advisable.

lovely Autumnal walk, v pretty woods, sweeping heathland and great views. Excellent directions. Only downside was being in earshot of a busy road for the last stretch. Might reverse the walk next time. Really enjoyed it thank you!
