bit muddy but the beach part was the best

Pleasant walk but badly sign posted, on arrival nothing to let you know where to start, had to ask locals. Along the route also a bit of a guessing game, thank goodness for GPS otherwise very easy to get lost. This is in a Hunting area so get the feeling they don’t want walkers around, came across hunting kennels on route and they didn’t seem too happy to see us! Good views and varied scenery, streams, moors, woods and old Meltham Railway line.

I’ve recently started mountain biking and I found this to be not too demanding to start off on and is quite rewarding at the end. I’m going back to do this again pretty soon would 100% recommend.

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.

Lovely walk on a beautiful clear winter day. Woods and fields to the Solent coastline. A cup of tea and slice of cake in Lepe Park half way round. Perfect.

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.

Done this walk yesterday 31/12/18 really nice walk would highly recommend

Done this walk many times in all weather. my favourite place in the peaks

Very wet and boggy, to be expected at the start of December. We had fun jumping across streams and bogs. Had young children with us and they managed fine. Was good fun getting to the top of Seat How, (was a bit tricky getting down due to the wet). Kids didn’t climb Seat How.

I was pleasantly surprised by this trail. It is a beautiful and extremely well-kept area. Considering there is a housing estate built around this area, the wildlife is amazing. I was followed by a number of squirrels! Fantastic walk.

Family friendly! Nice to spend the day!

Nice walk with some lovely views. A bit muddy underfoot in places!

Love this one, it’s a easy route, all flat, with some pretty views across the water, v family friendly

Absolutely iconic walk with history, views and a pub.

Such a nice place, I recommend keeping small children and dogs away from horses.

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.

You see so much at your own pace, we even stopped in at different pubs along the way!

Easy and pleasant walk, quite nice views on a beautiful day

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.

Parking £2.50 for the day at Harrietsham Station. Lovely views. I would say more moderate than easy on this one as I am by no means a hiker, but am walk/run fit, this was on a similar level to a harder trail I followed recently. The weather was good but there was a lot of mud and large puddles, some blocking paths completely so go prepared for this if using the trail at the tail end of the year! I have added some photos to show just how lovely this countryside is! Look out for birds of prey too!

Make it circular

We have walked this trail numerous times and it is one of my favourite walks. We usually end up in the pub! The kids love the llamas!

great views

I believe this walk is moderate not easy. The walk is dependent on weather. We spoke to Two people who were both lost. Young children on this walk will need a lot of care. Please be careful on this difficult walk. It’s a five star walk for children (as long as they are able to walk for 17km) if you have good weather. But if you have low cloud and rain it’s very difficult.

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.)
