A superb circular walk starting from Cocking Down car park, it begins with a fairly gentle climb along the South Downs Way. You are soon rewarded with fantastic views for many miles around. Then woodland bridleways take you through Westdean Woods to the Sussex Wildlife Trust Nature Reserve, with a chance to see deer along the way. Apart from a few paces on a quiet lane, there is no road-work to endure and as there are only a couple of stiles, it is suitable for all reasonably fit members of the family, a good walk for all times of the year as it is usually pretty firm underfoot. My dog managed the stiles and gates with ease and thoroughly enjoyed himself!

Really lovely walk. Thank-you for putting it on this site. Only problem is it can be difficult to park at Cocking Car Park.

Very enjoyable walk, easy navigation, with good views even on a rather hazy day and plenty of variety and wildlife (especially pheasants and deer).
