A lovely walk out. Excellent signposting throughout. Very muddy in some sections so a good pair of walking boots are strongly recommended. Can get a bit noisy from the M25 but soon you are walking away from it and back into the woods
A lovely walk, with excellent waymarkings
Easily accessible walk from London. Woldingham station is just one stop outside zone 6. It wasn't too steep and quite easy for my visually impaired companion. Lovely forest with lots of paths. We didn't actually need to use the map at all because it was so well waymarked. Then to the cafe/restaurant at the Knights Garden Centre for rest and refreshments. A lovely day out.
My son and I enjoyed this walk today. The mud was set hard, the tree trunks white from frost and the wintry sunshine made everything glow. It is an easy walk, through woodland and on tarmac roads at times. The noise of the M25 was loud in a couple of places, but we found a bench for a picnic and were very appreciative of the EXCELLENT instructions and directions provided on this web site and the very well signposted trail markers. Such a pleasure.
This is a lovely walk through horse farms, cow pastures and beautiful wooded areas. The trail was well marked and the accompanying pamphlet was very helpful. I rated it a three primarily because of the incessant gunfire noise emanating from an adjacent area. Evidently, the gun firers were compensating for something as they shot off literally hundreds of rounds during my walk. At times the firing was close enough to make me flinch and the sound was clearly audible for most of the walk. Also, each of the viewpoints was dominated by the sound of the nearby motorway (in addition to gunfire). The description of the walk mentions mud and there was lots of it. But it was the gunfire that removed any chance for serenity, peacefulness or contemplation.
