You begin near a tunnel on the Channel Tunnel Rail Link and soon climb on to the North Downs. Past Westfield Sole and Bredhurst, you walk through Monkldown Wood to Scragged Oak on the outskirts of Maidstone and then use the North Downs Way at high level all the way back to the start point. On the way you pass an interesting standing stone, known as the White Horse Stone and you also use a short section of the Pilgrims Way. This walk is best done on a crisp winter's day when the trees are devoid of leaves. That way you have views from the top of the North Downs for most of the return leg.

04.02.07 We were shocked to see the amount of fly tipping on this route. Fail to understand the mind set of the people who vandalise our country-side in this way. There appears to have been no attempt by the council to remove any of this rubbish [it has moss growing on it].
