The Wiltshire Landscape walking challenge

Evening sun over the downs

These twelve self-led walks take you all over the Wiltshire Landscape, exploring the National Trust countryside sites, from panoramic hilltops to deep coombes. Every site you visit is special for some reason, be it the archaeology, rare wildflowers or wildlife havens.

The Wiltshire Landscape walking challenge consists of a series of twelve walks which take you to all of the National Trust sites cared for by the Wiltshire Landscape team.

You'll get to visit some wonderful places, including Figsbury Ring, White Barrow, Dinton Park, Windmill Hill at Avebury, Cley Hill, The Coombes at Hinton Parva, Stonehenge Landscape, Piggledene, Sutton Lane Meadows, Calstone and Cherhill Down, Lockeridge Dene and Pepperbox Hill (go to for the individual websites).

The walks range between approx 4 and 10 miles each and follow national footpaths, public rights of way, bridleways, byways, and are all partially, but not completely, on National Trust land.

The walking challenge packs cost £12 and you'll receive twelve printed walks and a handy map holder.  Click here to sign up now.

We hope that you enjoy the walking challenge.

Please noteAs parts of these routes follow land that is not owned and maintained by the National Trust, we cannot guarantee that they will be as well maintained as we would hope.  All the routes are tested periodically and we will continue to monitor them; however should you encounter any problems please let us know via

Dogs are welcome on ALL the walks, as long as they are kept on a lead, under control and on the route indicated on the map.  (The Stonehenge Landscape walk states that dogs are not allowed - however although they are banned in some areas of the landscape, they ARE allowed on this particular walk).

Some of these walks are occasionally available on the site websites as a free download.
