A 3 mile (5km) circular walk to the north of Leatherhead. This route has been specially devised and signposted by the Lower Mole Countryside Management Project and Mole Valley District Council to provide an easy-to-navigate route into the countryside. The majority of the walk is in woodland but there are contrasting open areas too. Its character will vary with the seasons, so it is worth repeating at different times of the year. This walk is part of the Explore Surrey collection, published through a collaboration between iFootpath and Surrey County Council.
The walk is almost entirely flat and there are no stiles, gates or steps to negotiate. Conditions underfoot on the woodland paths will vary according to weather and season so stout boots are required and wellingtons are recommended in the winter months. The route is waymarked via a series of timber finger posts with distinctive green arrows. There are several busy roads in the area and special care is needed when crossing them. The route crosses a golf course so please show respect for the golfers by allowing them to play their shots before you cross and watch closely for any stray flying golf balls. Allow 1.5 to 2 hours, depending on the conditions underfoot.
