Stonehenge is a must see if you are in the UK. My friends and I choose to hike to the stones as it was overly priced to ride the bus to the top. We parked in the visitor area and it wasn’t expensive to park and didn’t require any reservations.. We began our hike by walking behind the bus stop near the gift store. On our hike we were able to explore and got to see some pretty fields that the people on the bus wouldn’t have been able to see. Once we got to the stones we were approximately 50 feet from them. The people who paid to ride to the bus wasn’t much closer to the stones than we were. The hike was about 2 miles. If you’re able to walk trials I would recommend it as I’m sure you’ll be glad you did. I would also recommend wearing comfortable shoes as there are rock on the trial and some incline.

We did a slightly shorter route due to time today. We followed a lot of the old cannel and locks. We did the full route on new years eve and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Windy at the top!

Very good walk. The hardest part of the day is the initial first ascend. Very steep at times but as soon as you reach the top of that, it all levels out as is very pleasant to the top.

If you love coastal walks, this one is great. Park at Minnis Bay, Birchington and walk along the beach or promenade to Reculver, where there’s a welcoming pub with grub or just a drink, before walking back.

Nice walk for all. With some more challenging section but nothing the dog couldn’t do.

Just watch where you park. Don’t want to come back to your car with a parking fine!

Definitely the park has a noteworthy engraving in the fabric of the Old Londtra, it seems - and it is - a common good; in fact, there are thousands of people who use it daily but in reality things are different. The Park is a good of the Kingdom and is usable by all subjects. It has been possible to preserve it over time thanks to the noble hierarchy that was ascribed (Henry VIII, 1536) with extreme ease immeasurable (monasteries) goods and which have now remained untouched but usable by all. Good? in the end yes: a lung of over 250 hectares in the middle of the city!

Lovely cliff side trail. Great views of the white chalk cliffs. Steep inclines in some places but very smooth walking.

Make it circular

We went on late October. The starting trail is easy and chill with amazing view of the lake and autumn leaves. It must have rained the previous day. Going down hill is difficult for us as it’s so slippery there are no stairs or enough gravels to support hikers. Overall experience is great and definitely recommend it.

Fantastic walk with different terrains to experience. Would definitely do this again. Completed in 3hrs 45.

An excellent (but steep in places) walk for all ages. Watch out for the top as when we went it was so windy

This is the BEST FREE way to see Stonehenge. Parking at the visitor center and lot requires prior booking and can be VERY expensive. There are trails all across the surrounding fields and area that you can use. This one is the best and easiest.

It also allows access to trails that can get you to Woodhenge and the nearby neolithic burial mounds. It also allows you to see the Stones outside of normal visitor hours.

Park on the side of Willoughby Rd near the intersection with Fargo Road. From there walk straight down Byway 12. (You'll pass the neolithic burial mounds on your right.)

Walk all the way to where the buses are letting people off and go through the gate.

You'll walk along a dirt path about .2 miles next to the sidewalk that paying visitors are using. You can get about 50 feet from the stones.

Total trip is about 2-2.5 miles. (You'll notice from this recording that we went in a wrong gate and had to backtrack.)

great place to run, walk or cycle, cafe at Hassop station and lots to do in Bakewell

Just fine. Quite flat, cute stream in part of the trail for kids to play. Forestry walk in the woods that looks fine. Well indicated path. Not amazing views or something really out of the expectations.

Great walk, great exposure to sun and can see far for most of the walk.

The uphill trail in the middle was good for working out, and a jog down increased the heart rate. Tired by the end, but plenty of places to visit on the way back.

Would go back & recommend going back with friends and family.

Would go for a speedy trek if I wanted to work out... very nice to go, we came from Birmingham and appears to be local.

We wore, meindl men’s Cambridge GTX walking shoe, and salomon 3D 4 gtx womens. 32 degrees clear skies sunny all day

We didn’t take exactly this trail. We took the ferry from Keswick across Derwent Water lake to the cat bells trailhead.

We then ascended to cat bells and walked along the ridge line to several additional high points — Maiden Moor and High Spy. Then we back tracked a bit and descended and took the ferry back. This was about 5 miles and ~2000 ft total elevation gain.

One can easily add chunks of distance to this hike on the end (all flat) if you want to hike along Derwent Water a bit to one of the various ferry points— or all the way back along the lake.

All in all a fantastic hike with great views.

Nice easy stroll. Enjoyable

Lovely hike up to Skiddaw and then back via 'Little Man'. Took about 4 hours overall with a few breaks and having lunch at the summit.

Great walk, fairly easy apart from a section of scrambling. Fantastic views and even on a sunny day was sparsely populated.
