At weekends head over to the shepherd's hut to borrow a tracker pack; they contain spotter sheets, pencils, binoculars and a compass to help your little ones explore the great outdoors.

Frosty mornings and bright clear skies epitomise this time of year in west Surrey. Breath deep and step out with friends and family to enjoy this magical time of year. Pack a thermos of hot soup and carry a woolen blanket and find a quiet spot to enjoy the view.

Hindhead Commons and the Devils Punch Bowl is one huge great playground; perfect for blowing away the cobwebs, wildlife spotting and climbing trees. Head over to the shepherd's hut at weekends to borrow tracker packs or download one of our trails to explore more on foot.

Now that all traffic passes through the Hindhead tunnel, the route of the old A3 is redundant to cars and has become a super highway for wildlife crossing from the Devil's Punch Bowl onto Hindhead Commons.

The Celtic Cross

In 1851 Sir William Erle erected an imposing granite cross, with an unusual Celtic design, to help dispel local fears that the hill was haunted by the ghosts of highwaymen.
