Step out and explore our footpaths

Explore our footpaths

Step out and discover our footpaths. There’s something for everyone from our family nature trail to the North Downs Way that stretches from Farnham in the west to Dover in the East and crosses Denbies Hillside. Most of our paths are clearly marked, but an Ordnance Survey map (Landranger 187 or Explorer 146) might be useful.

Our nature trail

This 2.2-mile circular trail is perfect for families new to exploring the countryside - discover all our amazing wildlife. Download our place guide before your visit or pick one up from the Denbies Hillside car park.
