Exploring the downs on foot

Spring flower and rolling downs

There are two walks that you can download here to help you explore this special place. One takes you across the whole of the downs and another shorter walk taking you around the delightfully tranquil Calstone Down.

Why not pack up your thermos and some sandwiches and spend a day embracing the outdoors and nature?

It's a steep walk up the hill but that moment when you turn and see the breath-taking views makes it all worthwhile.

Dogs are welcome as long as they are on a lead and under control as there are often livestock about.

If you'd like to explore some of the other National Trust Wiltshire Landscape sites, then why not take one of the Walking Challenges?

Please note that the Calstone and Cherhill trail (above) features on the Wiltshire Landscape Walking Challenge pack, however should you wish to purchase it as part of a pack of printed walks with a map holder then you can do so below.
