Cycle, ride or run at Toys Hill

Sunlight through the trees at Toys Hill, a National Trust countryside site in Kent

Toys Hill is not just for walkers. There are bridlepaths and way marked running routes for you to follow as you take in the beautiful views and scenery.


Fancy yourself as the next Bradley Wiggins? Toys Hill is the highest point in Kent and has some fantastic bike trails, both on and off road, which are popular with mountain bikers and road riders alike.


For those who prefer a more traditional form of horsepower, there is an extensive network of bridleways around Toys Hill. They are just perfect for hacking out with your horse.

Please note that due to a height barrier on the car park entrance, visitors are unable to park a horse box at Toys Hill.

Fancy a challenge? Then try the 6km Run England route that takes you through Toys Hill and past Emmetts Garden, another local National Trust property.

The route is winding, circular and undulating on woodland pathways. Red arrows and Run England markers clearly point you in the right direction so you can enjoy the magnificent views of the South Downs without getting lost.

Please note the route crosses country roads at 3 junctions so please take extra care at these junctions. Always follow the 3-2-1 route markers and in their absence follow the National Trust red route marker
