Description of walk: Many people consider this to be the most interesting Surrey section of the North Downs Way. With wonderful and varied scenery plus the distant vistas from various viewpoints, this walk makes a fitting highlight for the 2024 Guildford Walkfest. Much of the route is on footpaths and bridleways along the chalk of the North Downs. Your walk leaders have walked this route on numerous occasions and are “North Downs Way Ambassadors” so you can expect to learn many snippets of information as we stop periodically to catch our breath, enjoy the views and investigate our surroundings.

Any specific walk / conditions issues: This is an all-day walk with steep climbs. Apart from the Newlands Corner stop, there are no toilets or refreshment facilities on route. You will need to bring your own picnic and plenty of fluids. Good quality walking shoes/boots are essential.

Due to the length of this walk, dogs are not permitted.

Length of Walk: 14 miles (23 km)
