Cycling, riding and running at Toys Hill
Toys Hill isn't just for walkers. There are bridlepaths and waymarked running routes for you to follow as you take in the beautiful views and scenery.
Fancy yourself as the next Chris Froome? Toys Hill is the highest point in Kent and has some fantastic bridlepaths for cycling, which are popular with mountain and road cyclists alike.
If you prefer a more traditional form of horsepower, there's an extensive network of bridleways around Toys Hill. They're just perfect for hacking out with your horse.
Please note that due to a height barrier on the car park entrance, horse boxes can't be parked 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 three 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.
