|A 3 mile circular woodland walk from Hascombe in Surrey. The walk encircles Hascombe Hill which is the site of an Iron Age hill fort and comprises 6 acres of dense mixed woodland. The naturally steep sides of the hill provided natural defences for the hill fort and now these steep slopes afford excellent views across the Surrey Hills. |
The entire walk is through woodland making it ideal for dog walking. There are several steep ascents and descents and the paths are likely to be muddy after wet weather. There are no stiles or gates, just a couple of staggered fences. Approximate time 90 minutes.
Parking is available in the sandy car park which is opposite the White Horse pub on The Street (B2130) in Hascombe. Approximate post code GU8 4JA.
|Start to Log Bench|
Start point: 51.1453 lat, -0.5697 long
From the sandy car park opposite the White Horse pub, cross over the road and go up Nore Lane which runs to the right of the pub. After about 100 metres, turn right down a footpath which is marked with a yellow arrow and runs immediately to the left of a brick built garage.
|Log Bench to Fork|
Start point: 51.1385 lat, -0.5634 long
You may want to stop for a while at the bench to admire the views over to the right. On a clear day you are likely to be able to see as far as the South Downs and Dunsfold Aerodrome.
|Fork to Hill Corner|
Start point: 51.1399 lat, -0.558 long
At the fork, take the left hand path. Continue along the path with the valley steep down to the right hand side. You will pass a tree on the right which is anchoring an old rusted metal fence which runs down into the valley.
|Hill Corner to End|
Start point: 51.1474 lat, -0.554 long
At the corner of the hill, ignore the path heading steeply to the right and instead turn sharp left. Follow the path as it starts to go downhill and you will pass another faded blue arrow on a post on the left confirming you are on the correct path ahead.

Absolutely beautiful walk, and a wonderful app. Thank you so much :)
I want to congratulate you on your web site/app performance, quick, reliable and easy to use. I have similar walking apps with OS Maps and ViewRanger but yours is best.
This app has totally changed my life, i absolutely love it. I did this walk yesterday, what a beautiful walk it is, i thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely do it again, in fact i met an older gentleman who was on his 100 and something time there!! My sister and daughter cant wait to come along. The noise mentioned about the motorway is negligible and for me did not detract from the overall walk at all, the view from the top was stunning!!
So far I have downloaded 5 walks and completed 3 of them, tomorrow will be No 4. I love your website The walk descriptions are the best I have used in the last six years of rambling since I retired. This is a website I would be more than happy to pay a subscription for, instead I'll donate a sum to my favourite charity. THANK YOU.
Have deleted Pokemon Go and downloaded @ifootpathuk which is much more 'me'
I love the illustrated descriptions of each walk section. Really helps to enjoy the walk and get to know something about what I'm seeing. So much better than apps that only provide GPS co-ordinates and no photos or description. Love it!
After trying out numerous other apps I came across this one: way ahead of any of the others in every way. Much more accurate and very easy to use with great features. Would highly recommend it as THE app to use for walking.
Just wonderful, with walks for everyone: the fit, the not-so-fit, short walks, long walks, through woods, up hills (and down).
I highly recommend it, as my mum and I use it to go for walks and finish by eating at a pub. Its detailed and sometimes humorous instructions lead us easily to our destination. Also, to top this, it has interesting facts about the area we're walking in
I don't review much but this app deserves it. Downloaded some really good walks and the combination of the good descriptions and the really useful map of the walk showing where you are make it a brilliant tool. Well done and keep up the good work.
Very enjoyable and well described route. Views over the river from the warren were stunning.
Fantastic walk and amazing views. Great directions though I followed the GPS map mainly
Great walk, instructions were very detailed, perfect!
This may be the best walk I've ever done. It was certainly the best directions.
Even on a cold windy day with it trying to snow this was still an excellent walk. We managed it with our 2 children of 5 yrs and one in a all terain pram (a defo no no with a normal pram). Will be doing this one again in the summer.
Used app while visiting (it was great!)--live in Texas. Thanks!
Your app and walks are a dream to use
Did this walk this morning with our three little girls and we all love it. Great day outdoor!
