|Hampshire, Farley Mount|
|This is a beautiful 6 mile walk around the Farley Mount area. It starts at the Farley Mount car park and you will pass the mount (the pyramid shaped folly that gives the park its name) on the way to waypoint 1. Keep an eye on the views also as this is one of the most beautiful walks I know. There are also Geocaches along this route if you are that way inclined. |
The track is a solid well trodden track for the majority of the route, the first half is pretty flat, the second half has a few very slight inclines but nothing too bad. The track and footpath is obvious and is easy to navigate. There are no kissing gates or stiles on route.
Farley Mount is about a 15 minute drive from Jn 11 of the M3. There is a suitable car park which is nearby the actual Mount at Farley Mount and the car park is free (correct May 2016).
|Start to Bluebell Fields|
Start point: 51.0612 lat, -1.4213 long
From the car park you need to enter the footpath past the metal gate. Let's go!
|Bluebell Fields to Pump House|
Start point: 51.0538 lat, -1.4432 long
At the crossroads turn right, you will then be walking along a nice big open track with woods each side of you. This section is completely flat and again is beautiful throughout the year but especially when the wild flowers are out.
|Pump House to Moment to Remember|
Start point: 51.0608 lat, -1.4738 long
As you pass The Pump House on your left keep following the footpath until you reach a tarmac road.
|Moment to Remember to Best View in Hampshire|
Start point: 51.0668 lat, -1.4636 long
Once you have spent a few moments, keep following the track. You will notice there are some large 4x4 tracks as you continue along the path, but to the right of these there is a trodden path which is flat and easier walking.
|Best View in Hampshire to End|
Start point: 51.0607 lat, -1.4377 long
Keeping the view on your left, keep following the footpath. It does get a little narrow and is a slight incline but the metal fence will keep you on the right path. You can't go wrong at this point, just stick to the path until you get to the wooded section.

We missed the left fork after Farley mount as I was looking for a gate. The metal gate is more of a barrier photos at the junctions may help.

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!
