Starting Point: Hydon’s Ball car park off Salt Lane GU8 4BB
This woodland trail passes near the memorial to Octavia Hill, British social reformer and founder of the National Trust at Hydon’s Ball near Hambledon, before descending the valley and climbing one of the great sandstone escarpments of the Surrey Hills, Hascombe Hill. An army of ancient trees stands sentinel along the spine of the hill, close to an Iron Age Hill Fort.
The bridlepaths, at times following the Greensand Way, are good but involve quite steep ups and downs – your reward is the magnificent views to north and south.
The trail goes past the White Horse in Hascombe which has ample space for horses to stand while you enjoy a break!
