WalkingMuddy

Great area, almost too muddy for walking and dogs have to stay on leads. Stags and deer walking around also wild pigs. Great afternoon out.

We completed this walk back in the Spring 2020, as lockdown measures were being eased. The trail is easy to follow, the natural farming is interesting with a variety of animals to see on your way. Little bit of quiet lane walking but very pleasant. Recommended

Perfect walk. Very muddy in places after all the rain so be prepared to slip around a bit! Saw four stag, a couple of deer and wild pigs.

I really enjoyed this walk with its beautiful scenery, historical artefacts and wild animals. Route is easy to follow and well laid out. I really enjoyed the various things to see. It would be suitable for kids. The route was a bit muddy in places but expected for this time of year and on this type of trial. Overall a really nice short walk. Highly recommended.

Beautiful scenery and reasonably flat. Got a bit lost as seemed to loose sign posts but managed to get back on track. Very muddy at the moment but still managed to run just need to be careful.

RunningGreat!Off trailPrivate property

Great running route, well marked out. sign posted for 90% of it, if you have a map then great, I downloaded the route to my garmin fenix watch and it was easy to follw, The wildflife is amazing. Pretty flat route and 90% off road a litte bit bumpy and had a few cows and bulls to deal with but all part of the fun! Some of it is private paths across the knepp estate and if you map in Strava or plan a route in Garmin connect you have to switch to manual mode.

First to Review

Knepp Estate are undertaking a rewinding project. They have moved away from intensive agricultural production and now allow rare breeds of cattle and pigs to roam the estate. This approach has greatly increased the biodiversity of the land. There are also herds of fallow deer and a ground breaking white stork reintroduction project taking place. The best way to describe this walk is that it is mini version of the New Forest.
