The walk has several climbs and descents throughout. The forest and downs paths can all get very muddy so good boots are a must. You will need to negotiate some gates plus three stiles (with adjacent dog gaps) along the way. You will also be sharing some of the fields with sheep and dairy cattle so take particular care with dogs. The stiles and cattle are all encountered in the second half of the walk so, if you wish to avoid these, you can simply follow the outward leg both there and back. In this case you would only encounter simple wide bridle gates, so the route would be suitable for rugged disability buggies when the ground is firm enough. There are toilets in the car park at the start of the walk plus options for refreshments at the start point and also at the half-way point in Slindon village. Allow 4 hours plus extra time for stops and exploring Slindon village.

Good long walk, path over grown lots of flys and bugs. lots of open areas
