Day Hike - North Downs Way
Time & Location
About the Event
This walk starts from the bottom of Box Hill near the village of Westhumble. After crossing the river Mole the path climbs to the summit of the famous beauty spot of Box Hill. From here there are views towards Dorking and Reigate and of Denbies.
As you walk along the river Mole look out for dragonflies, wagtails and the electric blue of a darting kingfisher. Stop awhile to take in the ageing Second World War concrete structures which stand sentinel along the waters’ edge. This is a circular walk with a steep descent and climb.
We will stop off at the Stepping Stones pub on our return for some pub grub and a well deserved drink.
Westhumble is easily reached as it's just of the A24 and also easily reached on the A246 from Guildford. We will co-ordinate car shares. If you're travelling by public transport, there is a station at Westhumble, with trains to Clapham Junction.
